the skeleton woman
Story based on a traditional Inuit story, which talks about how important it is to choose well who accompanies you.
It is the story of a woman who despises her peers and, therefore,
she loses her woman's skin and becomes a being made only of bone.
It is the adventure of this woman, who manages to return to being a woman of flesh and blood... It is the story of so many women who leave our skin
and we have to learn to feel again...

Ana C. Herreros
He was born in León and his grandmother kept quiet stories. So he soon learned to listen to the silence and to love those who have no voice, those who don't count.
So much so that, years later and already an emigrant in Madrid, he began to write a doctoral thesis on the literature of those who neither write nor read. And so, researching in the oral tradition, he ended up in 1992 with oral narration. And he began to tell, and for more than twenty years he has not been silent. Then his voice filled with ink and he began to write. It has been translated into Catalan, French and Mexican. He has made an autistic man speak, a princess sit down to listen to his lecture and 16 6-month-old babies preferred listening to his stories to taking a bottle. Oh, if your grandmother raised her head...
With Libros de las Malas Compañías he has also published the following Titles:
He is an illustrator, narrator and teacher, but above all he is a narrator. He has been with the Jamacuco stage group since the last century, and he likes telling stories so much that he has gone from voice to paper. Now he also paints the parallel universe of the stories using colored pencils and a brush made of the hair of a child. Whether as a narrator or as a cartoonist, the important thing is that it continues to count.
As an illustrator, he has been working since January 2012 at the Ipad Magazine DON , and since May 2014 he is the art director, designer and illustrator of the publishing house Libros de las Malas Compañías. He already has a book published, La mujer skeleton , which has been a finalist for the Extraordinary Prizes for Plastic Arts and Design of the Autonomous Community of Madrid. It has also received the Honorable Mention at the XII Audiovisual Awards of the Directorate General for Equality.
