I'm working on writing and illustrating several children's books.

 

Daphne and Redthorn

I fell in love with yaks when I was visiting Langtang and Kyanjen, in Nepal. The story of Daphne and Redthorn was conceived during the happy hours I spent sitting amongst them sketching while they grazed. Here are two of the pictures, of Daphne and Redthorn on the mountain.

 Bunny Overboard!

Bunny Overboard is a story about friendship, loyalty and adventure. Here's one of the pictures - Sam is drying off his overalls.

Mouse and Egg

Mouse and Egg is a story about - you guessed it - a mouse and a boiled egg. You can find my posts describing the process of creating an ebook, from writing and illustrating to converting to electronic files and uploading to Amazon and SmashWords. These posts are tagged 'Mouse and Egg'. I also publish information about the process of publishing ebooks on my StarBytes Press site.

Here is some of my work from a class held by Franki Sparke about illustrating children's books, at the School of Art in Canberra. Can you guess what story we were illustrating???
