So excited for this book – featuring Ollie and his best friend (and dog) Augustus.
The idea was first conceived in 2014 over a tea (or was it a coffee? Definitely a hot beverage) with a sketch of a large dog and small boy. Fast forward four years and this sketch has become my 25th illustrated book and the first picture book I’ve both written and illustrated for Walker Books.
Released Australia wide in early 2019. Find some of my other books here.
I was given complete freedom in designing this poster. That in mind I selected to illustrate a balloon house (yes, my dream home if I can’t have a treehouse). The painting was created in watercolour and ink.
The original painting will be up for silent auction on the night so if you’re nearby make sure to book a table and bid. Proceeds go to IBBY Australia.
