Melanie Pearson

Writer, Illustrator, Creative, Consultant

I'm a self-taught illustrator who's finally coming out of the closet after working in community arts for years. I've done a bit of all sorts, from 35mm film editor (I originally trained as a film maker) to Feng Shui, and in 2011 started the Magic Lantern Film Club, Sheffield's first pop up cinema. These days I juggle small illustration projects and writing commissions with a caring role, so a lot of my work is influenced by this. My comic, "A Colouring Book for Carers" came out last year and I'm currently working on a new one, as well as a family memoir.
