The Quick Guide to ParentingHardcover – 8 Sept. 2016

‘Charming, quirky and funny’ – THE GUARDIAN, September 2016 ‘All parents will be able to relate to these hilariously accurate illustrations of raising children’ – THE HUFFINGTON POST (UK)/PARENTS, September 2016 ‘Beautifully drawn, honest and hilarious illustrated guide to the everyday life of a parent’ – MUMSNET, September 2016 ‘Laura Quick has perfectly captured the topsy turvy world of parenthood that all parents can relate to in one way or another in her new book’ – NETMUMS, September 2016 ‘Not only heart-warming but strangely therapeutic too’ – Gurgle magazine, October 2016 ‘Oh this is brilliant. sketches are spot on! I laughed out loud ‘lol’ could not put it down. its on its way to my friend who is in desperate need of entertainment while trying to run house children job shopping oooh!’ – Mumsnet User ‘I wish someone had given me this rather than useful parenting guides when I was pregnant. Laura’s sketches capture cute, cuddle babies and toddlers with the accuracy of classic children’s illustrators like Mabel Lucie Attwell but are bang up to date with the little diva moments we deal with… Read, weep, laugh out loud repeat with a glass in hand’ – Mumsnet user From what they said to the man at the bus stop, to where you found the remote control, when you’re a parent, laughing at what gets hurled in your direction is beyond important. Laura Quick has been sketching scenes from daily domestic life on her blog, ‘The Daily Think’. All the bizarre moments and ridiculous conversations that are part of being a parent are here, from the day Laura’s daughter tried to poke her finger into a dog’s rear end, to the temper tantrums, and the sense of relief when the school holidays are over. Chronicling all manner of parenting fails and mishaps, the illustrations are a welcome light relief for world-weary parents everywhere. Trained as an illustrator, working in art direction, concept development and strategy, Laura Quick is a specialist in editorial Illustration and design as well as look books, ad campaigns, and Visual Merchandising. She has worked closely with fashion photographers, artists and designers for over a decade. Laura began drawing and observing people for her blog, ‘The Daily Think’ six years ago. Listening and observing at fashion shoots, in meetings, on the bus and, later on, with kids in tow, in the playground. Laura now produces almost all her commercial work off the back of this observational and humorous style. Working for the likes of The Guardian, AnOther magazine, The BBC, The Royal Opera House, Thames & Hudson and many more, her work moves more towards her fascination in people and their habits, their self-expression and individual characters. The Quick Guide to Parenting encompasses these interests
