Artist's Description

Tazzie Tales of: … is a series of children’s adventure stories set in the ‘Tasmanian bush’. In the pages of the six Tazzie Tales books, the children of Sassafras Creek Valley become well acquainted with the native animals of the island, and their encounters always lead to exciting adventures. By helping injured wildlife, the children also overcome personal adversities, learn valuable lessons, and become friends for life. Follow their adventures as they discover a thylacine, rescue a ‘boatload’ of Tassie devils from evil bushrangers, track down and catch a fox that got onto the island, save a valuable stand of Bluegums from being logged, and have the time of their lives during their Halloween night ride. The books are illustrated.

The poster shows the map that I needed to draw, in order to keep up with what’s where, and it now is a splendid background, framed by the main characters of the six books, as well as Ben and Sam on their ponies, as they ride straight off the map, and into their adventures.

The animals are KD the Thylacine, Tazzie the Tasmanian Devil, Lucky the Tiger Quoll, the Swift Parrots, Goldie the Tasmanian Wedge-tailed Eagle, and a cute Tasmanian micro bat that made its appearance during Halloween. They are hand-painted on board, digitally layered and textured, and now grace not only the covers of the six books, but also T-shirts, mugs, posters, stickers, and a whole range of other useful things.

The illustrations inside the books are pencil on paper, digitally enhanced, layered, textured and framed.

I’ve had some pretty awesome adventures during the writing of the books—and even more so afterwards; that story is told here http://tasmanianartist.yolasite.com/ben-and-dan....
