Another Children’s book published – ‘The Light at the End of the Tunnel’Posted: July 14, 2017
The Light at the End of the Tunnel is another children’s book I got to illustrate working alongside writer/poet/actor/performer Mike Church. Written through workshops in Church Hall in Bargoed by a community group, the book subtly deals with the experience of being bipolar and of being a friend/relative or spouse of someone suffering with the disorder. The story focuses on Millie the “life and soul of the party” mole and her friend Mollie during a local bake-off competition.
The book launch took place earlier this week at st Gwladys Primary School in Bargoed where Mike read out the story to the enthusiastic children during an afternoon assembly whilst the pictures were projected on the walls.
This was a great book to work on and a challenge for me to visually create truly lovable characters as what the group had written was characters that the readers would be affectionate towards. My colour pallet for this book are different to any i’d used before as everyone on board the project was keen to have this be very accessible to a very young audience.
