Brotherly Love

And The Winner Is…

Culture

Here's who won The Connor Brothers' art. But everyone has been a winner this week...aw.

This week was The Book of Man’s first birthday, and it’s been a pretty special time, most notably with a guest edit by artists and CALM ambassadors, The Connor Brothers. This week, the Brothers, also known as James Golding and Mike Snelle, have been taking over the site with some incredible stories. Including:

 

‘Can’t Beat The Feeling’ – James’ story of cocaine addiction, and what addiction may in general mask: a desperate need for connection. Which launched an Instagram sharing campaign #wemustbecareful

‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ – Mike on his mental health problems and why sharing such problems in non-judgemental environments may be the way to deal with them.
