ILLUSTRATION • BOOK COVER DESIGN
Listening to Our Grandmothers
client: Mary Ann Mhina
Mary Ann Mhina recorded and wrote stories from the voices of five grandmothers. For the cover illustration I wanted to lean further into the theme of grandmothers by using imagery, story and visuals that directly applied to Mary Ann's own grandmothers — together, we came up with an illustration and a design direction that both supports the book, and represents the wisdom of the elders in Mary Ann's own life, as well as the women interviewed in her book.
