Hey all, my name is Tony I'm an illustrator from Australia (East Region). Newish to children's illustration with 1.5 years of experience. Currently on my second commissioned children's book while finishing off my visual arts degree.

Attached is some of my work. I am always looking to improve both my artistic ability and knowledge on what it takes to become successful.

From my non-artistic eye these look great. Love the saliva on the tongue, and the three eyed-spectacles :)
I also love the bright red (and white polka dots) kerchief over the muted sage green suspenders and blue sweater.



Thank you for the feedback :)


Welcome Tony! Terrific PB Illustration style!
