Last night I finally managed to get to meet the team at Illustrators Australia. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a while and it was a delightful experience. They are all practicing illustrators and donate their time to organising and managing events and additional marketing strategies for Australian illustrators. They’ve recently been putting together this beautiful little app that details many of the illustrators.
The lovely Naomi Hunter who wrote ‘A Secret Safe to Tell’ and is eagerly waiting for it to come out in print, sent me this facebook page she set up to promote the book. This is a picture book written to encourage children to speak up when they are victims of abuse. I’m very proud to have been a part of it, as I have said before here.
Also this week I have been finalising the roughs for a new book with some very lively and funny characters. I love developing characters.
