Author Elizabeth Wein writing in the NY Times says:
The graphic novel format, and Rigano’s inspired illustrations, drive and enhance Colfer and Donkin’s written dialogue. The complete package is a highly accessible introduction to the plight of all refugees.
I'm among the featured artists selected for the Original Art 2018 Exhibition at the Society of Illustrators in Manhattan, NY with one page of ILLEGAL - written by Eoin Colfer & Andrew Donkin, art by Giovanni Rigano, US edition Sourcebooks.
"Illegal powerfully visualizes the current struggles being faced by refugees and emigrants...through stunning, intimate visuals" - Entertainment Weekly
"Action-filled and engaging but considerate of both topic and audience, Ebo's story effectively paints a picture of a child refugee's struggle in a world crisscrossed by hostile borders." - Kirkus, STARRED review
A few days ago Andrew Donkin and me met Maria Russo from the New York Times for a Live Art session and spoke of ILLEGAL, our graphic novel written with the international children's books author Eoin Colfer and published in US by Sourcebooks.
