To die for

My advanced copy of 'to die for' by Mark Svendsen arrived today. I think the cover illustration has come up so well. There are a few of my watercolour wash sharks on the inside as well. It should be available on the shelves around the beginning of September (2012). So if you see it, have a look. I enjoyed the story a lot. for more details visit Random House Australia's website

Flying Raven

It has been too long since my last post. But I have been busy. These images are the update from my last post. the flying bird body that I created has been used here with 3 different heads. Im quite pleased how they have turned out. The heads took a lot longer than I expected. If these are accepted they will be used in greyscale as internal illustration images.

Making a paper bird


The above image shows the stages of construction for a paper flying raven. This is an object that I am working on for a book called 'What the Raven saw'. The images show the feathering of the wings, tail and body of the bird. I am still working on the head of this bird. Check back for the completed bird in a week or so.

My next paper bird, the pigeon is a character form 'What the Raven saw' by Samantha-Ellen Bound. It will be published by Random House Australia in Feb 2013. Im hope that this bird will be used on the back cover of the book.
