The Imaginarium of Mr. Robert Alejandro


I love children’s books. I always have and so it was a natural progression.

A long time ago, I did question myself if my illustrating children’s books was a worthwhile activity. I was wondering if it served only the very few who could actually afford the books. That was till I was invited to a “street library” where books which me and my friends created were shared to kids who lived in poverty (books were brought to the children in big bayongs for an afternoon of reading and sharing). This experience made me believe I was on the right path.
