One Very Tired Wombat is on display at Northcote Library in Melbourne from 2 – 31 October. For those of you not in or around Melbourne, I’ve included a few photos. (You can see a little video of the exhibit on my Facebook Page.)
In addition to fourteen framed scratchboard illustrations, I also curated a little display case as a sneak peak into how I created the book. I included a few early sketches from the “big sneeze” and draft book mock-ups at different stages. I also used the space to demonstrate how I create a scratchboard illustration with an in-progress piece and a sampling of my tools.
Lucky for everyone, the case was a lot smaller than I expected so visitors are spared my sketchy pages of color-maps, preliminary drawings, internal sketches, and scribbled-on manuscripts!
I left a big handful of bookmarks for anyone who visits. Please let me know if you happen to make it by the library.
