Penguin Children's cover design 2019
It was an R.J. Palacio Wonder cover design on the Penguin contest 2019.
I tried to show how all characters of the book are mutually influenced. August (the main character) is involved in the lives of his family members and classmates and change their actions and thoughts in the same way they influence his behaviour and self-determination. I used negative space of his silhouette and placed all characters of the book around him in weird and sometimes uncomfortable poses to show this metaphor of the society building the character’s identity and how August influences their lives at the same time.
Only the dog is comfortable in this illustration because it’s the only character which accepts everybody as they are.
