Last month I began working with IFWG Publishing Australia to design the cover and illustrate writer Kaaron Warren's upcoming novel The Grief Hole. Kaaron's book will launch in Canberra, A.C.T. on August 27th 2016 at the Canberra Writer's Centre during the 2016 Canberra Writer's Festival -- this has been such a thrilling project to work on, with Kaaron's writing talent and the publishing expertise of Gerry Huntman at IFWG -- I can't wait to see the launch of the finished book later this year!
In addition to this, I am currently negotiating with IFWG to publish a separate book of my own illustrations and sketches to accompany The Grief Hole. I will be putting the book together from illustrations to design work and layout -- making this my first officially published creative work. Adding to the excitement, the book will open with a forward from one of Australia's most celebrated artists, to be announced shortly.
Both books are tentatively scheduled to launch in August at the Writer's Festival, so stay tuned and hope to see you there!
