"Wee Granny's Magic Bag" - Giveaway

In all the fuzz about the Frankfurt Book Fair I nearly forgot announcing a new giveaway. This time it is a signed copy of "Wee Granny's Magic Bag" along with some postcards you are able to win, if you are lucky ;-)!
To win this giveaway you can either leave a comment on this blog post or like my facebook page! Doing both will of course double your chances! The winner will be randomly chosen and announced on the 1st of November 2011.

"Wee Granny's Magic Bag" is a lovely story written by Elizabeth McKay. It tells a story about Emily and Harry and their Granny. Granny's bag is magic and contains the most astonishing things like a red old-fashioned telephone box.
I illustrated this book traditionally in watercolour and ink. I already posted about how I got commissioned with this book earlier here on the blog. In the process of making the illustrations I completely forgot to take process pictures, so sorry for having not much to share on this end. I did manage to get this done for a book I recently finished, so there will be more insightful posts on how I create my art soon.

Another wonderful thing arrived the other day... my copy of the "They Draw & Cook" book. My "Monsters favourite Pumkin Soup" illustration is in it among great art from wonderful artists such as Silvia Sponza, Jannie Ho and many many others. It's a fantastic book and I will try to cook all the recipes in there. One of my favourite recipes from the book is Jennifer A. Bells Vegetarian Meatballs but honestly all of them are amazing and it is an honour to be part of this great book! (note: This book will not be included in the giveaway!)
