Storylines Exhibition

Squish Rabbit might be a little shy, but he can occasionally be drawn out into the spotlight. He was just days ago when he made his debut in a local exhibition called Storylines 2, which is being held at Gallery M (Adelaide) until the 29th of this month. The exhibition has been described as:

An exhibition of original artwork exploring the illustration process from concept sketches through to the final publication of children’s picture books

Hop on over if you’d like to see some fabulous art from illustrators such as Sally Heinrich, Claire Richards and Amanda Graham as well as a special installation by Marianne Musgrove and some of Janeen Brian‘s playful poetry.

    Congrats on your first picture book. I like the way you illustrate animals. I enjoy writing about animals and nature. I’m just transitioning into writing from another occupation.
