The Uncomfortable Revolution‘s first book Glossary of Awkward is coming soon to Kickstarter. ‘Written by UR co-founders, Brendan McDonald and Corinne Gray, and featuring original cartoons illustrated by Simon Kneebone, Glossary of Awkward™ is the perfect gift to buy for someone touched by cancer (a whole lot better than flowers). Use it as a conversation-starter, or to connect with someone you’ve been meaning to check in on.’

It was easy to become a Foodhero at WOMAD over the weekend –  by having your Foodhero photo taken. The unisex superhero character was drawn up for Oxfam Australia’s stall promoting their Our Food System is Broken campaign.

Mick, Jane and Me, Living well with MS is a book written by Adelaide poet Carolyn Cordon. Mick and Jane are the names of her sticks.  Carolyn writes:

When I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS)/… I wanted to have a book like the one I’ve written here -/a book with the feelings, medicines, processes/ emotions and misunderstandings/ I had to work through/ to find a place of peace within.

Carolyn also created a blog to go with her memoir – click here.

For the book she wanted an illustration at the start of each chapter. Because the book has so much to say:  Carolyn’s  story,  thoughts, ideas, and information, I ended up with many more illustrations than was needed.

Below are a few of the pictures.  Together they do tell some of Carolyn’s story.
