Path of Beasts cover

Well the final chapter of the Keepers trilogy is nearly here, and I was honored to once again paint the cover for the Aussie version. I think everyone is going to love this book when it hits shelves in October.

The only problem is now I don't have any more Keepers paintings to look forward to =/

I actually did a few more roughs for this cover, a couple of them I really grew fond of. I think I might paint one of them just for the fun of it.

And lastly here is the final version with all the design elements! (and a few alterations to the painting)

The Billionaire Series


I was lucky enough to once again work with Text Publishing, and  W H Chong, on a series of book covers for the Billionaire series.

These books are aimed at a young audience, but I tell you this is another case of me enjoying a book designed for children way too much! It is seriously a great series and I recommend you all check it out. They are in shops now.

And if you liked this series, I hear they are working on another trilogy which may or may not be starting next year =)

Lone Pine

Lone Pine is a new picture book published by the fantastic folks at Little Hare Books and written by the first time writing team of Margaret Warner and Susie Brown. Its a touching and poignant tale of the last surviving Pine Tree on the battlefield of Gallipoli and its successor which stands in the Gardens in the war memorial in Canberra.

It was my honour to illustrate the book, I hope you will all have a chance to look it up. Its out in stores now!

here are a few of the spreads-
