The River’s Soul

I went to visit the source of the São Francisco River with my family and all the upper area of the São Francisco in Minas Gerais. It really inspired me, so I decided to write this book. To illustrate, I used a mixed technique: acrylic and soft pastels on colored paper. 

The illustrations within this book were selected for the Illustration Exhibition and for the 22nd “Biennial Illustrations of Bratislava” catalogue in Bratislava, Slovakia, 2009.


More than 27,000 copies were sold. This book was indicated for the Jabuti’s 2009 – best children’s book.
