A trial painting for the publisher. A commission for a book aimed at the adolescent reader written by Australian author, Gary Crew. The Editor liked it, the Art Director liked it and all look set for me to begin an anticipated, 2 year illustration project. The publisher was sold to a multi-national mass media company…the project was put on hold…one week later the multi media company sold off the publisher’s children’s list, (adolescent books included in this) to a French publisher who sat on the project for 12 months and then scrapped it. So, this is my way of seeing at least one image on public display.
