Help 'Nana Duck' fly...
Over the past couple of months I have had the pleasure of working with local Author Kathy Tallentire on illustrations for her charming new story... Nana Duck.
The book is set in and around The Potteries (Stoke-on-Trent, England) and has a central storyline based on people calling each other duck. When moving to Stoke-On-Trent it was the first time I had experienced the use of ‘duck’ in a greeting and this has inspired a lot of my own work so I was delighted when Kathy got in touch to work on something that reflected a similar sentiment.
Whilst the story is set in the Midlands, it is bound to make you smile wherever you are from as it is a warm tale that celebrates the relationship between a granddaughter and her grandparents and the funny things that children pick up on.
To help with the publication of ‘Nana Duck’ Kathy has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund printing and promotional costs. There are some fantastic rewards including a book mark, a colour-in book, limited edition prints and even the chance to name the canal boat in the story!!!
If you are not familiar with Kickstarter, it’s a wonderful site to help creatives bring their ideas to life. It’s a great way to support smaller businesses grow and give them that initial boost to get their projects off the ground.
Thanks for reading.
