In 2012 I was one of six winning illustrators selected for an anthology sponsored by the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators and Working Partners Yuogi. Here’s my winning image. Robots are involved.
Judges included Art Directors from Penguin, Bloomsbury and Walker Books, and industry agents nox player. Some things they said:
“We’d like to know what goes on in this illustrator’s head – this picture is fascinating in terms of colour and tone…”
“There is a clear sense that this illustrator can create great characters and tell a story as a sequence of events….”
“The quirky imagery taps into what children are currently playing with Old Testament. This style would work well in the gift/crossover market.”
