Often it feels like our world has stopped when we lose someone, but life always moves on...
'Sometimes, We Get Lonely" is a book that can help children better understand the concept of loss and bereavement through the metaphor of a tree losing its leaves.
This book teaches the reader to be kind to themselves in accepting their sadness and loneliness after losing someone.
I exhibited this project at the end of my Illustration BA course in the annual YSJ Degree Show. I had a Dummy Book on a stand with fallen leaves around it. Framed on the wall I had three enlarged spreads, spotlighted to see up close.
My stand got many positive comments from visitors, praising 'Sometimes, We Get Lonely' and my professionalism.
