Chronicle Date: 06/29/2016 Illustrations for Life of a Bastard

Illustrations for Life of a Bastard are done by Laura Caiafa. Laura is an illustrator and cartoonist who studied art in Buenos Aires and London, specializing in character design, comics, and children’s books. You are probably reading this and thinking cartoonist? children’s books? Let us not forget that the failing child care system is seen also through the eyes of the children in the system. Like any child, they start off in wonderment of the world as they sit and watch their Saturday morning shows. Unfortunately, the world ends up painting a different picture for some in foster care. This book is illustrated in children’s fashion although written for adults to not allow us to forget that these stories are told by adults now who lived through this as children.
