Lucy Rose Kerr, who graduated from MA Illustration: Authorial Practice at Falmouth in 2014 has received a glowing review from Becalelis Brodskis, Creative Director at InterAnima. Lucy was taken on at InterAnima under their placement scheme and has been named as an “outstanding employee”.
InterAnima are a community interest company ‘who use interdisciplinary arts to animate the stories that need to be told. Celebrating individual expression and breathing life into community led positive solutions. All profits support their social objectives: to use interdisciplinary arts to facilitate community development.’
Lucy was tasked with turning an extraordinary manuscript by artist Nicky Loutit – New years day is Black into a format ready to approach to publishers. Lucy worked with ‘sensitivity, creativity and diligence’ when taking on the manuscript and it certainly paid off as InterAnima were overjoyed to confirm last week that New years day is Black will be published this coming Autumn!
The book has also been given a glowing review from Eimear Mcbridge, Author of “A girl is a Half-Formed Thing”
Right from the start I found it completely gripping. Beautiful and horrifying… The human story had me at its beck and call the whole way through – utterly extraordinary. The evocation of that very particular loneliness irrelevant children feel was almost unbearable: Congratulations to Nicky Loutit for making work out of the terrible. Eimear McBride
