Picture Book (work in progress): Flight Paths, 2017
In 2017 I was very grateful to be awarded with a Copyright Agency Cultural Fund mentorship, via the Australian Society of Authors (ASA). Through this, a leader of the field is sponsored to give me regular mentorship throughout 2017, as I develop my picture book, Flight Paths. I am very luck to be working with the inimitable Sue deGennaro.
The book I pitched for the mentorship is already, five months later, almost nothing like what I started with — which is great! It also means I won’t write much about it, because it will all change.
The one thing that I am (almost) certain of, is that the book will star Norbert, the Norwich Terrier, who accidentally flew.
The pictures shown here are a selection of the artwork I pitched for consideration of the award, and some sketchbook roughs.
