Home Start is a charity aimed at improving lives of parents and children around the UK through education and advice. When they approached me to work on their charity calendar I was eager to help out, as our work as children’s illustrators serves to inspire and help children in every way. The charity are great as they support the whole family through what can be a tough time. How infuriating must it be but also comical for a small child to be happily helping you to finish the painting in the way they’ve been taught at nursery or school. It also combines the dad and daughter relationship that so many single parents lose sight of or cannot have due to unforseen circumstances.
