Excited about the recent release of this book from Annick Press - 'To This Day' by Shane Koyczan. I had the pleasure of being one of the illustrators who got a chance to illustrate a verse each from this fantastic anti-bullying poem. It was a thrill to be asked to participate, along with so many other talented illustrators, and to be part of something so positive.
From the publisher's website:
'Now this extraordinary work has been adapted into an equally moving and visually arresting book. Thirty international artists, as diverse as they are talented, have been inspired to create exceptional art to accompany “To This Day.” Each page is a vibrant collage of images, colors and words that will resonate powerfully with anyone who has experienced bullying themselves, whether as a victim, observer, or participant.
Born of Shane’s own experiences of being bullied as a child, To This Day expresses the profound and lasting effect of bullying on an individual, while affirming the strength and inner resources that allow people to move beyond the experience. A heartfelt preface and afterword, along with resources for kids affected by bullying, make this book an invaluable centerpiece of the anti-bullying movement. '
