So... I kinda won that Illustrator Battle yesterday. Here's a photo of me holding a trophy (for the first time in my life - I'm traditionally a last place getter!) It was super cool to hang out and draw off against illustrator extraordinaires Cheryl Orsini (Caravan Fran, Lucy's Book), Jules Faber (Weirdo, Stinky Street Stories) and Matt Stanton (This is a Ball, Funny Kid) for the first ever NSW Premier's Reading Challenge BookFest Illustrator Battle.
A big thank you to the cool kids from Kingsgrove Primary School who came along, decided the challenges and even helped with the illustrations. And thank you for voting for me - excellent taste in illustrators!
And a shout out to Microsoft for hosting the event at their Pitt Street store. It was an awesome venue and super fun to be drawing on the sweet Surface Studio. Some seriously cool tech!
