I might see you at Federation Square, if you are Melbourne based. Please say hi, if you are in the area. I’d love to see you.
I’m bringing a small number of limited edition prints to sell at the book stall along with signed books.
Below are some prints from the actual book, that will be for sale. And following them you’ll see some altered book prints which show the inspiration for the medium that was used in the book. But they also show the difference between the artificially created cream and the natural vintage book parchment.
The parchment is naturally a much dirtier colour… which appeals to my inky nature, but the Allen & Unwin book designer Sandra Nobes very rightly recommended a clean cream for the book itself, and this is where PhotoShop was my ally. Thanks Sandra and PhotoShop.
Dogs, dogs and more dogs! Do you desire dalmatians? Do you prefer pugs? What dogs do you like? Maybe some honest mutts?
These original illustrations (and perhaps a couple more if time allows) will be auctioned to raise funds for my sons’ primary school in Mentone Australia. The final day for bidding will be Saturday 23 March (if you can make it over to Broome Ave Mentone in person to enjoy the fun of the school fete) or you can bid over the phone until Friday 22 March if you live too far away or you’re too busy sipping champagne by the pool.
If you would like to phone through a bid with your credit card details, call the school office on +613 9583 4935 or you could email them on firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
The Dalmatian and the Pug are monotypes (one-off prints) hand coloured with watercolour.
