The Otter & the Meerkat

I recently completed the images for ‘The Otter & the Meerkat’, this book was a personal commission job which filled my heart with joy. One of the things I loved most about this story was that some of the scenes were based in Melbourne… oh how nostalgic for me. The culture, the food, the love, the good times.

It was great to fast track myself through the book making process and it has me eager to move forward with my next project… working on an actual real book for children with a wonderful writer and good friend.

A new year a new challenge

Character Design Weekly Challenge- Week 1: Pet. Baby and pet dog by Amie Sabadin 

In 2018 I’ve decided to get on board with the Character Design Weekly Challenge. Since I’ll be spending a lot of my Illustration time on commissions and books, I’ll be trying to complete the challenge drawings during craft time with my little ones. I’ll then quickly finish them off in Procreate. Of course I say this now but time will tell and processes will change to suit my life at the time.
