Friday was a lovely day to head for the coast (Southport) and what did I see from the M62 the Jaume Plensa sculpture Dream.
"When we dream anything is possible" Jaume Plensa
We had a lovely walk up to the top of the site where she sits majestically sits surveying the countryside below.

Difficult subject

Female Genital Mutilation
Usually my commissions are light hearted and I can add an element of fun to the illustration but this commission from the Royal College of Nursing for the Nursing Standard was an extremely difficult subject. The article about FMG was very informative and highlighted the problem authorities have in trying to stop this illegal practice. The article mentioned that young school girls were taken on holiday to have FMG performed abroad (this is also an illegal practice.) I was unaware of how big this problem was in Britain.
