Kindness, tenderness, love, honesty and vulnerability run like golden threads through Charlie Mackesy’s exquisite pen and ink drawings. One shows a boy, a horse, a fox and an adorable tiny mole all huddled together in a dark and forbidding forest.
In others, they cower beneath a looming thundercloud, struggle to find their way through thick undergrowth, or just knot tightly together. Always together. Always close. Always cheering one another on with simple but uplifting thoughts.
