The Boomerang is a collaboratively produced children’s book, created with the help of my dear friend Kathryn Flynn. The story is based around a moment from my own childhood, in which I brought my father’s boomerang to school and falsely claimed to be able to throw it; a small lie which quickly spiraled into a barely-averted disaster. After I had created initial sketches for the graphic approaches to each illustration, Kathryn and I worked closely to match my concepts with her illustrative style. The book was produced as a 24-hour challenge, from concept to printed, simple sewn bound edition of three in 23:54.
