When are You Going to get a Proper Job? Parenting and the Creative Muse
As a parent and graphic artist, Tariq finds himself stuck in a cycle of guilt, torn between quality time with his family and creative time in the studio. This beautifully illustrated comic humorously and helpfully looks at how to keep your creative muse happy while fulfilling the other important roles in your life.

You Make Your Parents Super Happy Explaining why parents decide to separate in simple,understandable language to children, this candid graphic story reassures and comforts any child whose parents are breaking up. Fully illustrated, with characters that any child can relate to, this book is a lifeline during a confusing time.
