Stars and Baseball

cover of YA book by Wendy Wan-Long Shang
{It got a starred book review!}

In publishing, receiving a starred book review is a biggish deal and one of my latest projects I worked on, THE WAY HOME LOOKS NOW, just received a starred review from Kirkus Reviews, a book review company for both adult and children’s literature.

For this project, I was very excited to be asked by SCHOLASTIC to design the title type for this book jacket. The book has a baseball theme and I wanted the title to reflect this story element. I also wanted to maintain the hand drawn look throughout the jacket in both the illustration and title.

I’m all smiles today.

Happy Friday to you!
