Bilko's Bad Hair Day
A few weeks before Christmas 2012 a lovely woman by the name of Aifric got In touch inquiring to see If I could make a few Illustrations for a story her boyfriend made.
After reading the little story about a very self conscious badger named Bilko I was instantly taken with it and felt that It needed more than a few random illustrations. The sentiment and idea behind the gift was just too nice to do by half.
With the Christmas rush looming and with the help of some amazing friends such as Paddy Dunne and Ciaran at Plus Print I was able to illustrate, design, print and bind a few personal copies of Bilko's Bad Hair day In 2 days.
This was a really fun and spontanious little project that had a load of heart from the beginning to end.
No badgers were harmed In the making of this book.
Story and words by Tony Dillon and Fintan O'Higgins.
