Marotta launches NHS colouring download

Pavilion-published children's illustrator Millie Marotta has launched an initiative to get the nation colouring while supporting the NHS.

The Animal Kingdom (Batsford) author has launched a Love NHS illustration to combat stress and anxiety during the coronavirus crisis.

Designed to show a heart with the NHS logo underneath, it will be made available as a download.

Pavilion said: “Once coloured, the illustration can be posted on social media, put up in the window, used as a flag or be sent to a loved one.”

Marotta is a freelance illustrator working in her studio by the sea in west Wales whose debut Animal Kingdom was a bestseller in 2015. She has since published several colouring books and stationery products, which have been translated into over 30 languages.
