The Curious Ar-Chew LAUNCH

Our newest picture book, The Curious Ar-chew, is being launched next week in Auckland at a free event held by Storylines. All are welcome, you just need to  RSVP here.

John and I were very excited by the script for Ar-chew, which was written by first-time author Sarah Grundy and deservedly won the 2016 Storylines Joy Cowley Award. We feel honoured to have been invited to illustrate it, and as it’s the first picture book we’ve worked on since Melu in 2011, we almost feel as if we’ve come out of retirement ;) We loved the experience, so hopefully there will be more to come in the near future.

We also wrote a post on The Sapling about how we went about creating the artwork for the book. (The Sapling is a fantastic resource for anyone interested in children’s books.)
