Gemma O'Callaghan : Half a Man

Children's Books

Featured in Exhibition

Series of illustrations for Michael Morpurgo's 64 page book about a grandfather, who as a young man was disfigured and how his physical and mental scars affected his life and the lives of those closest to him. O'Callaghan made a choice not to directly show the grandfathers face as Morpurgo's text is so vivid.
