House Like a Lotus is a young adult book written by A Wrinkle in Time author, Madeleine L’Engle. The concept for this cover took a literal approach, using the lotus as the house in the main artwork. The direction of this project was influenced by L’Engle’s refined work with a soupçon of whimsy. The illustration uses a balance to capture the themes of identity, trauma, and forgiveness.
