Books Moo-ve Me
For 3 days in January in 42 C heat a bunch of illustrators from SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) worked in Frané Lessac's lovely studio in Fremantle painting a fibreglass cow. We had a ball sketching, painting, telling stories, patting the friendly pooches, coming up with 'cow' puns and sharing lovely gourmet lunches in Frané 's air conditioned house :)
It was fabulous working with other inspiring talented illustrators such as Karen Blair, Wendy Binks, James Foley, Samantha Hughes, Frané Lessac, Matt Ottley and Briony Stewart.
Our cow along with 76 other cows is now traveling down south for Cow Parade in Busselton on 21st February. They will be cows of leisure residing in wineries, galleries, restaurants, shopping centres, boutiques, businesses, parks and lighthouses from March - June 2010.
We were very grateful to be allocated a cow and given the opportunity to take part in this international art exhibit.
The cows will be auctioned off on the 10th of July 2010, proceeds going to various charities.
