I’m so excited to show you the the latest issue of Peppermint Magazine – the sixtieth edition!
It’s a dream come to have a Disabled Icons feature in a fabulous magazine. At the star of the year I pitched this to Lauren, Peppermint’s editor, and we’ve been working on it for months. I profiled seven people who identify as disabled, chronically ill and neurodivergent. James Hillier – known as Nordacious illustrated the icons. He did a brilliant job!
Featured are; Shelby Sherritt, Elizabeth Wright, Renay Barker Mulholland, Craig Shanahan, Chenai Mupotsa-Russell, Cooper Smith, and Nat’s What I Reckon.
I wanted to showcase diverse people with cool jobs, showing readers what’s possible. Visibility is possibility. I created what Little Carly wanted to see and what Little Carly needed.
Big thanks to my faves, Obus who supported this feature too. Buy Peppermint in newsagents and online. Thank you Peppermint, James, and all the icons featured. This is amazing!

Video: stills of Carly holding the magazine in the newsagent are at the start and end of the video. In the middle is the camera panning across a magazine, which features an illustration and photos of, and writing about seven people. The video has captions on it. Transcript is above. Photos are: Luke John Matthew Arnold’s cover of affirmations – white words on a black background; Carly holding Peppermint in the newsagent, and Nordacious’ colourful illustration of seven happy, creative people.
