What is the connection between Beato the tomcat and Deveo Studio?

This will be a tough mission, since we won’t be stopping at the super obvious fact that the charismatic tomcat Beato’s vertiginous rise in popularity is due to his visual look. The people behind the illustrations for the “Beato Goes To” children’s books series are none other than our colleagues at Deveo Studio, Alexandra Abagiu and Oana Vaida.
The author Sucheta Rawal was born in Candigargh, India, and currently resides in Atlanta, in the state of Georgia, in the United States of America. In between these endpoints, however, there exists a whole range of other places which Sucheta has visited and loved. It is no wonder then that she has undertaken to share her travel experiences with young readers! This is how the series “Beato Goes To” came to be, as a challenge for 4-7 year-olds, or even for 47 and 74 year-olds. The only prerequisite for enjoying these discoveries are to have a young heart and to be driven by an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. Her characters and the curiosities presented in her texts are inspired from the varied and fascinating realities inhabited by people from several parts of the planet.
To make things more exciting, she created an alter-ego for herself, which she then sent out to trek the world far and wide. Beato began as a simple domestic tomcat, comfortably settled in a suburban Atlanta home. Subsequently, however, he became an ardent traveler, exploring places like Greenland, Israel, Indonesia, Japan, Brazil. This punctuates an important similarity to Deveo Studio itself, whose creations also reached many points on the world map: the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Japan, Norway, the Netherlands, Great Britain, Greece, Germany, Ireland, Romania.
In each place he visits, Beato becomes acquainted with the local animal species, he learns about the way people live there, and tastes the most bizarre dishes. His sense of adventure also characterizes us at Deveo. More specifically, art-venture is our main specialty, and this explains how we are able to navigate a multiplicity of illustration and animation styles with so much ease.
Finally, let us not neglect one more essential similarity between Beato and Deveo, especially since it is favorable to us. Both the traveling tomcat and we at Deveo believe that Sucheta is very right in her assessment that we are the best team ever!
