Wonderful artist Ingrid Smejkal has designed this original work especially for Dandelions and Bad Hair Days and I simply can't thank her enough for donating it to the project.
Taking the working title as her inspiration, the 'hair' of the dandelion clock takes flight as the androgynous figure takes a first hopeful look between the fingers of strong hands. The colours are bold - an uplifting sky blue and the green figure to reflect the stalk of the plant.
The text has yet to be added to the cover but already I am sure the book will stand out on the book shelves..
At present I am having a tough time thinking of a sub-title to the book - one that I am happy with. 'Experiences of living with depression' is just not punchy enough when the title is so creative! Any ideas gratefully received.
