Finding Someplace - Densie Lewis Patrick

 Cover design for Finding Someplace by Denise Lewis Patrick for Macmillian, New York.

Finding Someplace is the story of girl caught up in the New Orleans floods after Hurricane Katrina. Below are three of my initial pencil sketches. Anna Booth, the art director had the idea of showing a house from above surrounded by water, she sent me photos taken after the flood where people had painted pleas of help on their roofs. I thought this was a great idea, and quite an interesting and challenging angle to work at and get right. The book is due out on August 4th.
