My illustrations in this issue of New Moon Girls magazine sit alongside 12-year-old Nora Holmes’ story, The Stars and the Balloon. The focus of each image is Nora’s main character – in one, she stands her ground within a star-scape; and, in the other, she ponders her place in the world from her bedroom. I drew both with pencil and coloured them digitally.

New Moon Girls is an award-winning, ad-free magazine that tells the world who girls really are. It strives to help raise strong girls in a still-unequal world through support and encouragement. There’s no diet advice, no hyper-sexualised images and no ‘perfect girl’ contests.

Based in Minnesota, USA, the magazine publishes contributions worldwide, including from girls aged eight and up. It’s available in print and digital formats.
