Rafael Pombo was a poet, writer and cool guy (I like to think that), he was like the Colombian Dr. Seuss. He wrote a lot of short poems for children that are very famous in Colombia. So I decided to illustrate the covers for 3 of my favourite ones.
This are fake mock-up for a Spanish publishing company called Norma. Norma sells books all over Latin America, and I used to read a lot of their books when I was young. So I picked it because of my memories and nostalgia.
Los poemas de Rafael Pombo son de las pocas cosas que me acuerdo que han estado siempre en mi vida. Así que para este proyecto de la Universidad decidí hacer unas portadas "falsas" para mis tres poemas favoritos. Espero que disfruten mi version de El Renacuajo Paseador, Mirringa Mirronga y Simón el Bobito.
