How To Catch A Shooting Star

Original book cover, 2020.

This book cover is to accompany a children's story that I created. The plot focuses on three characters: Pig, Magpie, and Opossum, a lovable trio that goes on an adventure to make a wish on a fallen star by eating it. This children's book would be for children typically considered too old for picture books, around ages 6 and up. My goal would be to have a picture book for older children that is beautiful and also tells a compelling story about friendship and always chasing after what you want.

For the cover, I wanted to focus on the characters themselves and show how they would travel together in a stack. I also wanted to use typography that gave a more retro feeling like some other classic children's books.
