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.
