Lucy Berry's Single Mum Column

Hi Folks,

Here is the May illustration for Lucy Berry's 'Single Mum' column for Reform magazine. The focus of this short story was Lucy and Saville's beloved dog Janice, who has had such an integral role in their family lives.

"I remember the day Saville discovered that animals were not generally attributed with having souls. He simply couldn't believe it. His vehement argument proceeded along the lines that few people have human friends as good, reliable, loyal, entertaining or willing-to-do-what-you-want-to-do-yourself as their dog friends."

In next month's June edition of Reform, I illustrate Lucy's story on coping with mental illness and how this can effect your life way after the symptoms themselves have disappeared.

May Up-date

Hello Folks, sorry it's been a while! It was lovely to have a two week break and get away from it all visiting friends and family around the country recently but now I am back and raring to go again. One of the illustrations I produced just before the Easter break was for The Sunday Express, which accompanied a short story about one man's memories of his past and a lost love.

I am currently working on an illustration for Reform magazine which will accompany a short story by Lucy Berry about mental illness and how a breakdown can affect a person for life, even when fully recovered. Watch this space...!
