The Question of Miracles Book Cover


Book cover for The Question of Miracles, by Elana K. Arnold (Houghton Mifflin Harcourtavailable now on Kindle, hardcover to come Spring 2015! Thanks Liz Tardiff for the awesome project!


Synopsis: Sixth-grader Iris Abernathy hates life in Corvallis, Oregon, where her family just moved. It’s always raining, and everything is so wet. Besides, nothing has felt right since Iris’s best friend, Sarah, died.     When Iris meets Boris, an awkward mouth-breather with a know-it-all personality, she’s not looking to make a new friend, but it beats eating lunch alone. Then she learns that Boris’s very existence is a medical mystery, maybe even a miracle, and Iris starts to wonder why some people get miracles and others don’t. And if one miracle is possible, can another one be too? Can she possibly communicate with Sarah again?



I had a lot of fun exploring a few different directions and styles, here are a few roughs of the other concepts!

Coffee Labels






Got to play around with a few different styles for some coffee labels commissioned by supergood designer Marc Rimmer of Bosk&Beck. The client ended up going in a different direction, but they were a lot of fun to do anyway, I would love to do more of these in the future!
