Farrusco - Bichos, Miguel Torga

Acrylics on cardboard, various sizes

Long time no see!
Here are three illustrations of Farrusco, a story from Miguel Torga's Bichos. It's about a single girl who asked a cuckoo how many years did she have till marriage...he sang three times, meaning she'd be single for three years. She got really mad and this blackbird, Farrusco, laughed like crazy. She asked it again and the cuckoo didn't stop singing! She got really disappointed, but when she least expected, Farrusco showed up again and had another good laugh. She brightened up and with Farrusco's contagious grin, she started laughing so bad, that her laugh flied through the air ending up in the cuckoo's ear! The night started coming and Farrusco lied in his modest bed, resting so he could start his day early in the morning.

I summed it up by illustrating 3 key moments of the story through it's onomatopoeias.
