Hey ya!
Hope everyone is well.
Apologies I haven't been producing new sketches and art recently. I've been working extremely hard on a new a project, which is finally nearing it's completion.

It's the Stitches & The Troublesome Stitch Children's book!
I've even got a youtube video explaining it, check it out if you fancy:

Stitches II by FrozenArk

For those of you that haven't heard,

It's marvelous tale of the mumbling scarecrow. A tale of self discovery, confidence and self belief.
Stitches, the scarecrow, has a stitch of thread across his mouth which causes him to mumble.
He embarks on a journey, An adventure driven forward by his desire to speak normally without the troublesome mumble.
He meets wonderful characters on his way.. A pesky crow, a cat that dreams of being a lion, and an adventurous little sheep.
In humorous ways each friend attempts to help remove the troublesome stitch across Stitches mouth.

Do any of them succeed? Well, in short, no.

Instead on this journey Stitches learns something, something much more important.
He decides that the stitch perhaps was not so troublesome at all.
The Stitch is what makes Stitches who he is. Delightfully unique and extraordinary.
He rediscovers his self confidence and believes himself once more. Hopefully something a child reading this will be able to relate to.

The best thing about this project is that it's much more than just a book.

My aim is to make this an experience for a young person.
To visit schools and do readings, complete with a magnificent red hat, just like in the story.
Relevant activities will be planned to get children engaged, thinking about communication and the difficulties that may be faced.
And also a physical information pack for parents who may be affected by this issue containing useful information and contacts is looking to be published.

I would love it if you could have a look at our Facebook page.
Help promote our mission to help young people with speech difficulties.

Thank you kindly for reading this.
I appreciate your time greatly.
