From thumbnail, to rough sketch, to the final illustration.

A whole bunch of thumbnails for the final full page illustration. You can see that none of these ideas made the cut in the progress video below.

‘The Cat with the coloured tail’ children’s book

The Cat with the Coloured Tail is a middle grade picture book, written by Gillian Mears, and published by Walker Books in 2015.

I did about 30 illustrations for the book, mostly black and white pencil illustrations on paper with spots of colour here and there.

It was shortlisted for the 2016 Australian Book Industry Awards, the 2016 Readings Children’s Book Prize and longlisted for the 2016 Indie Book Awards. I was also nominated for the 2016 Crichton Award for New Illustrators.

The Cat with the Coloured Tail is available to purchase at your local Australian bookstore or online.
