Artwork complete for The Last Viking

The illustrations for my first picture book, The Last Viking, are all done! Hooray!

The Last Viking is written by Norman Jorgensen and will be published by Fremantle Press on June 24 2011.

The supremely talented book designer Tracey Gibbs has been laying out the pages and I’m really pleased with the proofs so far.

here’s some more info on the book on the official page, including some sample illustrations. There’s also a facebook page and a blog, where Norm and I have been documenting the process of making the book since June 2010. Come by and visit some time.
