Cover art complete for Tommy Turner
Very pleased with this new cover art for Tommy Turner's Tremendous Travels, soon to be published by Ali Seegar. The book also features over 20 black and white internal illustrations that were drawn in pencil and tweaked in Photoshop. It's shaping up to be a very unique little book featuring a boy who can travel between dimensions. #publishing #illustrations #bookcovers
In January of 2016 I was commissioned by Kirsten Milenko and Walkin' Promotions in Sydney to illustrate a children's based on their Koala character, Karla Koala. We agreed to aim for a style that blended pencil, watercolour and subtle Photoshop enhancement. Below is the final cover art and a selection of interiors from the book. #publishing #illustrations
Artwork for Finding Cathcart by Wendy Milton
Here is the cover and three of the interior pics for Finding Cathcart by Wendy Milton. This is the 6th book I've illustrated for Wendy and sees Zach Brinkley and his friends learning stage magic whilst dealing with international espionage! Great fun to work on as usual... #zachsstory #illustrations #bookcovers #publishing

Great progress pic, from sketch to final image
I love how this image shows how this drawing of a headmasters office developed. It doesn't do the pencil version justice but does a great job of demonstrating how much shading and contrast can be enhanced in Photoshop. #illustrations #zachsstory #publishing
The Great Ferry Race published in Australia!
The 3rd book in the Ferry Tales series goes on sale today. We managed to get it sponsored by children's charities Unicef, Camp Quality, Red Kite & Bear Cottage. It's my favourite yet on a personal and professional level. #illustrations #ferrytales #publishing
