Book 7 interior roughs

Some of them.

Dinosaur Hunter Book7- Leaellynasaura

What colour should he be? I would go for a scrub turkey look but black isn't good when its in a burrow too.
Variously puffin,pukeko, ground parrot, owl, ground dwelling forest birds inspired.

Serving mainly to remind me that I desperately need to finish W and  X.
Yes- my cheap scanner is grubby, no my lovely a3 one isn't fixed.

Wombat Swag!

New book! New board book version and sweet sweet plush wombat.
(A ray of joy in the last 5 months of family illness turmoil and resultant work turmoil)
The team at Hachette have done a brilliant job- it's weird to be presented with something made from your work that's so beautifully done. Also I'd normally pick apart my work and tut tut about it, mutter about what to do make it right next time- but am so overwhelmed by the designers work (+their skill in obfuscating things I might tut about).
