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 I’ve taken photo’s of toys, scanned fabrics, cardboard, out of date kids’ books, and sourced free online patterns, then put it all into Abobe Illustrator.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.
