A refreshing, stylish, light-hearted yet true-to-life approach to disability.

 

Using personal experience as the foundation, Hannah Ensor's stickmen products  - stickers, keyring cards, books and more - help tell the reality of a differently normal life without a trace of pity.

 

"So many things relating to disability seem aimed at people with no sense of style or humour. Afraid to admit difference - or totally boring about it."

 

"Let's face it, life with disability is full of humour, where conventionality is a myth, political correctness is an accident, difference is normal and life is eternally absurd."
