Illustrations for Stories2Connect

Sequence for 'The Serious Business of Hiding the Ball', Stories2Connect
original b&w version
Thrilled to see my illustrations for The Serious Business of Hiding the Ball', part of Stories2Connect Project, are now online. These stories will also be part of a phygital project, where digital stories will be put into physical projects.

Here is the blurb about the story:-
The Serious Business of Hiding a Ball was co-created by young people and the author, Amy Lee Tempest, using ‘story-making dice’ designed by the Stories2Connect project team. The story features a dog called Baxter who dreams of becoming an astro-physicist but feels anxious about his first day at school. Baxter has a special ball that helps him to cope when he is feeling nervous. In fact, his ball is his world, but Baxter is worried that the other dogs at school might not understand. On his way to school Baxter meets a new friend who helps him to realise that the solution to his problem was right under his nose all along…
This story was illustrated by Anna Violet and is aimed at young children and families. The story is especially relevant for children and young people who sometimes struggle to cope with change or new situations.
