You might have noticed that the cartoons on the front of the Quokka have changed. I resigned from drawing their covers a few months ago, in August, so that I could focus on picture book projects like this one.
My 1st cover was in June 2003… my last cover, Aug 2010. It’s been 7 and a bit years, and it has flown by.
It’s been strange not drawing the covers any more, but it’s also been nice not having the weekly deadline. I do miss drawing the little guys.
Thanks to Quokka Press for giving me a space to practice and learn. And thanks to the people out there who’ve sent me comments and encouragement over the years.
I didn’t get around to posting my final lot of quokka covers, so here they are.
I really enjoyed this winter storms one- the rain was a fun effect. It was my final cover published, and it was a little nod to the very first cover I had published way back in June 2003. Here it is below.
My style has changed a fair bit since then 🙂
That’s it for the quokka covers- no more for me. You can see some of my favourite covers in the Quokka Gallery.
And here’s a final watercolour sketch that I did for myself.
