This year studio member Bronagh Lee published her first illustrated children’s book, ‘The Pain in the Chest’ written by Áine Murray, and has announced the second book she is working on – ‘Rosie’s Magical Umbrella’ written by Karen Ryan.
The Pain in the Chest “follows a girl through her childhood and shows how anxiety has affected her using beautiful illustrations and rhyme, we learn that when we talk about our anxiety, we can find help, and the anxiety loses its power.” In a studio vlog, Bronagh discusses the full process, from reading the manuscripts, sketching and brainstorming, to the finished illustrations.
Having seen the beautiful process behind Pain in the Chest, everyone in the studio is waiting with bated breath for “Rosie’s Magic Umbrella” – “A child’s imagination is a powerful tool, but what if it REALLY could take you anywhere? Join Rosie as she heads out on a rainy day adventure like no other!” (Release date TBA 🐠)
