Book Dash Durban

This week-end I had the amazing experience of taking part in Book Dash Durban. This brilliant initiative aims to have 100 picture books in the hands of every child in South Africa by the time they are 5!

How does Book Dash work? Twelve teams made up of three creatives (a writer, an illustrator and a designer) get together to produce 12 books in 12 hours! It’s intense and exciting and thoroughly exhausting!

Here’s a page from my teams book. Our writer was Andrea Abbbott and our designer was Fathima Kathrada……….

All change!

After feeling rather stuck with my work for a while I had tea with a lovely person who suggested I try another way of doing things. Oh, how wonderful that some people are so good at sharing their knowledge! I am so excited and LOVING work again.
