Spreads from “Is Daddy Coming Back in a Minute?”. Text by Elke & Alex Barber

I designed and illustrated these two children’s books written by mother and son team Elke & Alex Barber.

As well as illustrating the first book, my work involved helping define the voice of the main character and editing text.

My illustrations involved the use of pencil sketching, watercolours and Adobe Photoshop.

Both books are aimed at young children and deal with the difficult subjects of sudden death & bereavement.

The first book was nominated for CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2014.
