I wanted to create a modern book cover/sleeve for an old classic that would catch the eye of a book store peruser. 

Aesop’s Fables are a collection of short stories that teach valuable lessons to it’s readers. One of the iconic stories is the “Lion and the Mouse” in which the lion spares the mouse and learns the importance of helping others.

The story emphasizes the pride and arrogance of the lion in assuming the mouse could never help him due to his tiny size. I wanted to portray this in a simple modern style with contrasting colors.
