Highlights Hidden Picture

Here's a recently illustrated page for a new
'Hidden Pictures' book for Highlights High Five.


 
I got the commission partly due to the image below,
which was an Illustration Friday submission back in April 2009!

'Chloe the Storm Sister', the eighth, and last in the series
of Spell Sisters books, has been published by Simon & Schuster.

Here's Chloe...


...and here she is in situ on the front cover!




And here's a colourful row of all eight books!





I'm sad to have finished the last book, but it's been a great series to illustrate.
Here are some of the internal b&w illustrations...

view image of the same characters for 'worn' in June '13!!








And here are they are again...
