So a friend of mine posts a link on Facebook to this children's book illustration contest in Belgium, hosted by Clavis - who appear to be quite a substantial publisher of children's picture books.

So I send in my book about the hares, mainly just for the heck of it and because I needed a deadline.

I'm one of the finalists.

Now I'm scared.

Manuka (2014) by Starsong-Studio
Manuka (2014)
The manuka tree required a slightly different approach. A cultivated version of a NZ native tree.. with tiny little needle like leaves and tiny little bright magenta flowers.  So it ended up being lots of tiny little dots, basically.
