The first reaction I had when I started browsing “Fenómeno” in the library was: “I want to tattoo again”. I identified myself immediately when I started reading it. I saw that Maria Herreros was there. She seemed cool and happy. Behind her, some guys where mounting a small exhibition with some of the drawings from the book. I bought it and I asked at the counter “do you think she will sign the books?” and the lady said “no”. So I smoked a cigarette outside, I got my crocodile and went back home.

For Maria Herreros everyone is bizarre, some people just know how to hide better. I understand that. : )
