Freddie and the Fairy
I have decided to enter a competition run by macmillan and waterstones for an unpublished illustrator to illustrate Julia Donaldson's new book. She wrote books such as the Gruffalo... Up till now she's primarily worked with illustrator Axel Scheffler, so i guess they're looking for a change of pace for the new book. the first deadline is may 18th, and they want to see a full colour spread, the three main characters in full colour and at least two animals in full colour (the story is about a boy who wants a pet and wishes for all these animals...) I'm so excited, and although i know my chances of winning are slim, it's great to work to a deadline and get experience doing this... and if i win, bonus thank you.
