My Brother’s Husband

February 2019

A conceptual redesign of Chip Kidd’s cover for My Brother’s Husband — an acclaimed Japanese graphic novel by Gengoroh Tagame that takes a different direction and reaches a wider audience than the majority of his work.

Yaichi, a stay-at-home single father, lives with his daughter Kana in suburban Tokyo. They are visited by Mike Flanagan, the widower of Yaichi's estranged twin brother Ryōji, who has traveled from his native Canada for three weeks to learn about Ryōji's past. Kana is fascinated by Mike and is immediately accepting of him, though Yaichi is hesitant to accept Mike as family.
