Severino was a boy with huge eyes. I like to draw characters with that kind of trait. He was a boy full of dreams. I decided to use varied techniques in the illustrations, such as paintings and collages. Severino, the boy, sketched many drawings on paper, to ask for rain in his region that was dry. So, to represent these drawings I took many drawings from my children, printed tiny versions of each and glued onto the illustrations.
