After a successful Kickstarter campaign (www.kickstarter.com/projects/lindatoigo/babyc), I decided to sell my ABC book on my shop as well.

As a new mum, I have been thinking about how my life has changed since my kids are around, and I decided to share my findings in a book.

BABYC Is an illustrated collection of funny, desperate and intense moments of life with a new baby.

What happens to a family when a brand new baby arrives?
No matter how many books we read, how many children we already have, how much kit we own, we can still feel completely unprepared. Being a new parent is a job that can make you feel alone, inadequate and vulnerable, even though it is also incredibly rewarding and powerful. Without a good sense of humour, it can be very difficult.

That’s why I created BABYC: an honest, ironic, and sweet depiction of the first year with a baby. It is an alphabet book, with a keyword for every letter.

To make my illustrations, I start from a sketch that I then divide into small details.
The skin pieces for the characters are cut from pages of a well-known parenting book: ripping up that book already proved to be a highly therapeutic task. The remaining separate parts are cut from hand-painted card and assembled into detailed images. The illustrations are then scanned and prepared for printing.

although it took a long time due to customs and more my mother loved it. Really well done and above all numbered that gives an extra gear. Excellent communication with the seller, kind and who was very honest. Highly recommended.
