Over The Hills and Far Away

Hi all (I say optimistically). Here's a newly completed illustration for a book called Over The Hills and Far Away, a collection of nursery rhymes compiled by the Seven Stories National Centre for Children's Books in the UK. 70 illustrators from around the world are contributing artwork to nursery rhymes and Ann James, Shaun Tan and I have been asked to contribute an Australian flavoured spread. My rhyme is Algy saw the Bear.

Some of the other illustrators include; Michael Foreman, Bob Graham, Eric Carle, Mo Willems, Emma Chichester Clark, Nick Sharatt, Robert Ingpen, John Lawrence, Pamela Allen, Shirley Hughes, Jane Ray, Axel Scheffler, Jessica Ahlberg, Emily Gravett, Mini Grey, Yasmeen Ismail, Joel Stewart, Kevin Waldron, Pat Hutchins, Anthony Browne, Jerry Pinkney, Ashley Bryan, Oliver Jeffers, Lucy Cousins, Pamela Zagarenenski, Sara Ogilvie and Yasmeen Ismail.

The book will be released by publisher Frances Lincoln in September, 2014.
My illustration was a lot of fun!
