Things have been so busy the last year that I completely neglected doing any personal or sketchbook work. Commercial work stretches my skills and problem solving capabilities – my personal work keeps the flame for illustration burning. In my little universe, I need both to be my best. So for the last few weeks, I put a little time aside daily to work on a personal series of illustrations called “Can I call you back?”. Here is the first result.

"Nicolene has displayed remarkable sensitivity to conjure up stories of honest, interesting, cheerful people, true to their unique culture and context - even though the culture and context is quite different from the artists's own. Through line, colour, character and visual narrative, she's assisted our Community Relations team in northern Mozambique to initiate personal dialogue with rural communities around their involvement and role in the development of a natural resource mega-project. Thumbs up and appreciation to a storyteller of note!"
