I have worked with several self-published authors since coming back as a children’s illustrator.
One of the most interesting topics I worked on, was with an American author and magazine editor, Ginny Ellsworth. The picture book was personal yet a much needed book for children. We discussed how to create the book. We wanted to ensure that it was less clinical but gearing toward exposing children to different type of families existed within our community and the world. That includes blended families with separated households, same sex and single mother by choice.
This project caught my attention because it is an issue we see in society yet not much has been spoken about it.
