New kid's book in production

So as you can see I have been busy! This is a big one, special special special. I yam excited. Here is the cover of A Simply Spectacular Hat written by Libby Gleeson! Thankyou to Vanessa at the Cancer Council of NSW for the commission, and my fab creative Wendy for pulling it all together.
I have included two page layouts in my book folio if you'd like to see a little more ...
The illustrations are in a new style I've been wanting to do for a very long time. Just waiting for the right project to come along. I've taken photo's of toys, scanned fabrics, cardboard, out of date kids' books, and sourced free online patterns, then put it all into Abobe Illustrator. The linework was illustrated on a wacom tablet, adding a little hand drawn feel with the stroke on 'pencil' setting. Of course, I still began the project with pencil and paper. I think I might put a page up with progress photo's if anyone is interested.
A year gone - whooosh!

This is my new cover for Bubble Gum Trouble and other giggle poems written by Helen Ross, it's a fun children's poetry book now released. I finally learnt how to use my nice shiny wacom tablet, so all illustrations were created digitally in Adobe illustrator.

The following was written by the author Colin Thompson about the book I donated the vultures illustration for ...
In a perfect world this book would not exist, but we do not live in a perfect world. At any given moment of any given day, there are people dying from natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, epidemics and famine that we have no control over. Beyond natural disasters we add disasters of our own making, but even if we all learn to live in peace, there will still be millions of people who need help.
