Butterfly in the Cocoon is a collection of six stories of domestic violence, a project of the Vietnamese Community in Australia (South Australian chapter). ‘The stories identify issues around gender stereotyping and the misuse of power and control in these families… Each of these women is like a butterfly in a cocoon, they are unique, beautiful and precious’.Cover design FINAL

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.
