Below is my recent submission to the website Illustration Friday
This fantastic site promotes professional illustrators and those who do it just for the love of it. Every week they email out a word - and this week it was 'bicycle' - you do your illustration and then upload it for the world to see.
It's a simple concept, but heaps of fun and a great way to add pieces to your folio
By the way, my 'bicycle' poster design, is also available from my Gift Shop as a poster and framed print.

An illustrator who I greatly admire is Stuart McLachlan. His latest work for 'Original Juices' was recently featured all over Melbourne in giant press ads and billboards.

Rather than just seeing his work though, you will soon be able to hear him speak about it at the AGIDEAs International Design Forum, held this May in Melbourne. Can't wait!

Last weekend I took the kids to check out the State Library's exhibition on the art of Australian picture books called 'Look!'.  It is an amazing showcase of the talented illustrators residing in Australia.

While we were there we joined in an attempt for the world record for the most children reading in one location.  Sadly, no records were broken but Melbourne families were provided with an opportunity to celebrate reading together.  The weather stayed fine and the kids got to do free art activities too!
