The Big Read Trail Map illustration

To celebrate Roald Dahl’s Centenary year, the rear side of my book bench for The Core Theatre, Solihull highlights two classic Dahl characters together for the first time in a quiet and whimsical scene. The bird delivering the book is an ode to Solihull’s Home Library Service, enabling less mobile local residents access to enjoy books.

Update: The illustration will also be the official cover illustration for The Big Read Trail Map! I am excited to have my work on the cover of two consecutive Wild in Art Trail Maps in 

The Big Read update!

The Big Read launches in 3 days on Thursday 14th July and here are some sneak peeks of the finished and varnished book bench for Thinktank Birmingham and Millennium Point.

I am so excited for it to go live and hopefully raise money for the Children's Hospital through all the creative and literacy events that will raise money during Summer 2016.

The photograph below is a snapshot from the wall display at Millennium Point which will tell the story of the bench's conception!
