It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing. Welcome to my blog about children's book illustration, poetry, animals, vegetables ... OK, maybe I should stop there. I’m an artist in Hobart, Tasmania. I've just illustrated 'The Smallest Carbon Footprint in the Land' by Anne Morgan, and am currently illustrating two picture books about traditional life in Sudan. If you'd like to see more, please visit my linked folio page, view my profile at The Australian Society of Authors, or email me at email@example.com. Thank you!
Here's something new and feminine (but very high-tech) for this Saturday's market - flower pendants! I made them using a strange amalgamation of old and new technologies. The flower images are sun prints of flowers from our garden. I arranged the flowers on photo-sensitive paper and exposed the paper to the sun for a couple of minutes, scanned the resulting images into the PC and re-sized them. My friend glass artist extraordinaire Merinda Young printed them onto ceramic decal paper for me (in exchange for a Vegemite scroll - thanks Merinda!), and I fired them onto opaque art glass. The iron in the ink fired into the glass, leaving behind a sepia image. The images are of grass, daisies, grape hyacinths, lavendar, and scarlet runner beans. I'll be developing some hand-drawn images for pendants soon, I hope.
