Illustrations of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’
Posted 10 months ago and submitted by Sian Bowman | Share link:

In personal time this month I have chosen to illustrate some of the magical moments in BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing. We all sit down as a family each weekend and enjoy the show together and it is a really special time for us all. My children know all the names, I’ve noticed them dancing at parties with more energy and I love what they are learning from the show.

I felt so moved by Rose and Giovanni’s dance in week eight and illustrated the moment they danced in silence as a tribute to the deaf community. I also created an illustration of John and Johannes Samba dance (week eight again) to celebrate their partnership and the joy they share by being themselves. It is wonderful to watch.

We hired Sian as a contractor to illustrate our children's book. Our relationship could not have been more perfect. She was able to interpret the story and the illustrations showed that she knew the characters and brought them to life. Any modifications were made graciously and quickly. We could count on her and will use her again and again and again as we publish more books.
