Illustration for Home-Start 2014 Calendar...

Earlier this year I was contacted by the lovely people at Home-Start UK who were looking for children's illustrators who might be able to donate an illustration for their 2014 charity calendar. I was happy to donate an illustration and have recently received a copy of the finished calendar... A huge thank you to Louise from Home-Start Arun for organising it!

Home-Start 2014 Calendar - October illustration by Nicola L Robinson

It probably comes as no surprise that I contributed the October illustration (my birthday month!) and obviously Halloween too. My illustration is a family of Halloween dragons, complete with carved pumpkin and some fluffy 3 eyed bats.

I think the calendar looks great, the gorgeous cover illustration is by Kim Geyer (also the month of March). It is a nice big square format 305mm by 305mm, with 12 different children's illustrations from 12 published children's illustrators (including myself)  It is printed on matt paper, making it easy to write on,  and has a 5 column planner format, so you can keep track of all the important dates and whereabouts of all the family on it...

The illustrations are all really bright and colourful and will look superb on the kitchen wall, or the hallway or wherever you hang your calendar. Mine is going in the dining room...
