Lynne’s adventure

Our very own Lynne Hickin shared the spotlight at the launch of author Brian Abram’s new book Charlie’s Big Idea earlier this month.

Lynne has illustrated Mr Abram’s self published book in the series of The Adventures of Grandad Wheels, turning her skills to digital art from her usual oils, acrylics and pastels. Lynne is an active member of the Halifax Art Society and often leads workshops and talks for our other members.

It’s an impressive piece of work… I appreciated that Grandad was normal, and not the whiskered dotard that I would have been tempted to draw. Congratulations to Lynne Hickin.

The book launch took place at the office of Irwin Mitchell solicitors in Leeds and they even had Lynne’s illustrations added to the cupcakes for the event.

After being left paralysed in a cycling accident, Mr Abrams turned to writing to entertain his grandson and help him understand what it is like to use a wheelchair. Sales of the books will benefit two spinal injury charities: Back Up, and the Spinal Injuries Association.
