My good friend Andy Harden wrote a charming tale last year for a children’s book. He had the great good sense to ask me if I could do some drawings for it and lockdown was a perfect opportunity to get involved. The book is out now and all the proceeds from the sale will go to Kingsway Primary School in Gloucester where Andy works as a teaching assistant.
It’s been a joy to work on, and unusually I did the drawings for this project in colour. You can see them all on my website and you can also buy the book from there too.
I had a wonderful morning there yesterday where Andy and I introduced the book and the drawings to the children. To have 400 children applauding you is a real buzz. It made my day. The books are flying off the shelves now and hopefully we will be able to sell all 200, which will rise around £1000-00 for the school. They are £5-00 per copy from the school or £6-50 on line to cover postage and packing.
Andy and I were the star turn at yesterday’s assembly at the school! I’ve not been close to so many little people for quite some time! Seeing that sea of beaming faces was a little intimidating but they were all very kind, and asked lots of intelligent questions.
I hope you can spare the time to pop over to my website and take a look yourself. If you’ve got any questions then please put your hand up and wait to be asked.
