The Thing About Leftovers

I always love working with my old friends and colleagues at Penguin Books, so when AD Irene Vandervoort asked me to take on this fun middle-grade cover I jumped at the opportunity!

This is a funny and sweet middle-grade read about a southern girl, with a passion for cooking, who feels like a “leftover” from her divorced parents’ marriage but eventually comes to realize her very important place in her new blended family.

After exploring lots of concepts—including graphic, type-driven, and photographic approaches, we decided to play off the “leftovers” title and I created this fun typographic illustration. The book pubs next spring, but is available for pre-order now.
