Maroubra Junction Public School
"Wow, what a beautiful little picture book for kids to learn valuable life lessons! I'd recommend this to any parent or teacher. If you liked 'Giraffes Can't Dance' you'll love The Indigo Flamingo!"
"After 17 years of developing advertising campaigns to help corporations get richer, I figured it was time to focus my creative powers on humanitarianism over consumerism.
My goal when creating The Indigo Flamingo was to do my small part in creating a more accepting and inclusive world for my daughter (Indigo) to live in.
The book aims to create a fun and simple way to generate empathy and kindness in children from a young age. My hope is that it can help kids identify the importance of diversity and raise money for kids in need."
"I'm an Illustrator & Designer from Sydney, Australia. I have always loved art and design and after completing studies at Enmore Design Centre, I went on to study Graphic Design at Tractor Design School which shaped my process of bringing hand-drawn natural world themes into the digital realm.
When Marc asked me to illustrate this story, it was a no brainer for me! It's such a crucial message for not just children, but for everyone. We are all different. And, instead of seeing these differences as a barrier, we should be celebrating them and learning from one another."
