The Magical Labyrinth - Book out soon!

Exciting news!! The children's book that I illustrated recently will be out soon. Here is the final cover design. This lovely story was written by Ruth Jacobs Weaver, thanks Ruth for giving me the opportunity to illustrate your beautiful story - I am truly touched. Thanks also go to the publishers - Brolga Publishing.

A delightful children's story that explores the mystery and magic of the labyrinth and fairy land.

As Joel and his mother venture into the forest and walk the winding labyrinth, the fairies are ever watchful that they stay safe and don't wander off the path.

When they reach the centre of the labyrinth, the place where all wishes come true... Can you guess what Joel wishes for?

This beautiful story gently shows how we can all be kind and loving to one another.

Author Information

Ruth Weaver is a first time children's author from Western Australia and currently works as an art therapist. Her interest in labyrinths as a metaphor for life's journey has grown over the years and was the inspiration for this book.

I'll be posting more on the book in coming months. Can't wait to open my box when it arrives!

My Illustration in Easy Living UK

Back in September I had my illustration the "Crow and the Peacock" published in Easy Living Magazine UK. It was around the same time I gave birth to Zoe so it missed a mention back then. I have finally taken some photos of the magazine. The issue was an Inspiration special, detailing where people got their inspiration for their various endeavours. My illustration was coupled with some of Alex Monroe's beautiful jewellery. He was inspired by the fable the Crow and the Peacock.


It was a quick drawing I did for Illustration friday for the topic "seed". Ethan was just a baby at the time so I went for a walk in the local park and drew it as he slept. A few months ago I found this on polyvore and was at first alarmed, then flattered, but now I am not sure how to feel about it. When I found it, it had been up there on Polyvore for a whole year. When I told my husband and my sister they said "that's great Anna!!". I am happy that the image is linked back to my blog, which is the way I found it in the first place. But then the artwork looks terrible cut like that. I do not condone the use of other peoples work, but I also like to do collages for my own scrapbooks and sometimes as inspiration for my artworks using photos I have cut from magazines. I also play around with fashion styling using pictures I have saved off fashion sites, plus I have dabbled with polyvore using fashion images. I assume that most of the collages on polyvore are done by young teenagers who have probably not even thought of the ownership issues. So where do you draw the line?
