Cate James Illustration
I was very proud and delighted to be announced as the winner of this year's Penguin Random House Illustrators' Showcase at the SCBWI Conference! It really means a lot to me after moving to Australia four years ago and wondering if my career would work out on this side of the world. I am the little yellow guy in this picture!
I have just finished illustrating a very sweet story with Affirm Press in Melbourne. It is about a walk by the billabong, and features a lot of animals and trees and nature. I did hours of research for this book as I am not a native Australian, and wanted to get the natural parts just right. Here is a dingo who has got a lot of love on facebook this week!
A talented producer/director/journalist friend of mine has been filming in the Antarctic and is working on a children's story about global warming. I am playing around with some images for it.
