I Choose Elena

I Choose Elena is about the effect of trauma on the body and the mind. A devastating event can leave a lasting effect not only on one person, but their relationships and families over generations. The cover hints at the pervasive nature of trauma, without feeling overly violent or literal. The lettering is hand painted, using my typeface Anchoa as a starting point. The visceral textures and haunting image of the ink ‘invade’ the cover.
