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. Here’s my winning image. Robots are involved.
Judges included Art Directors from Penguin, Bloomsbury and Walker Books, and industry agents. 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. This style would work well in the gift/crossover market.”
