Last week I did a whirlwind job on a super short deadline for Dave Lunnie at Fenton Stephens Advertising. It was for a booklet to be distributed this past saturday at Darby Day in Melbourne for bookmaker Tom Waterhouse. The booklet is full of his little tips on how to win on the ponies and the images are going on to his website as well I believe. Anyway, here are the pages I illustrated. I think I had Saul Bass' illustrations in mind when I was working on the roughs. A big thanks to Dave who provided me with great art direction, quick responses and much more room to be conceptual on an advertising job than I normally expect. I didn't think the headless chook would get past the pencil stage. Cheers!
In other good news I had some images selected to go over as part of the ASA delegation headed for the 2011 Bologna Book Fair. If selected they'll go into the Illustrators Exhibition and the book that they publish. This will then bring me the fame and fortune so richly deserved yet elusive to my illustrious children's book career. Yep.
The images below are for an unpublished kids book I've written and illustrated called "Billy McNickle's In A Pickle". Billy is a cheeky boy who finds himself literally in a Pickle until he decides to chill out and be a good boy. If you're a publisher and you're reading this....ummm, can you please publish it? That would be great. Thanks.
