The cover of Tiny Sunbirds Far Away depicts an illustrated portrait of the main character. The story tells of big life changing circumstance in this young girl's life. My intention was to show her thoughtful, yet for the image to be positive. To achieve this I playfully intertwined her silhouette with the title and added a flock of colourful tiny sunbirds to keep her company.
