Here’s a peek inside Shearing Time.

I love it! Shane McGrath is an awesome artist and his illustrations are amazing! I created an early version of Shearing Time with dreadful stick figures, then translated that into thoughts for Shane, I didn’t let him see my stick figures! It was magical to see Shane’s interpretation come to life. He created concept drawings, we discussed these and then he waved his magic paintbrush. Shane’s blending of simplicity and meticulous detail in his illustrations is outstanding, he adds humour, character and links to his own life – check out the tally boards in the shearing shed! Don’t forget to comment on one of my daily posts and share a childhood memory for a chance to win a copy of Shearing Time. Some terrific comments coming in! You can buy Shearing Time from the wonderful team at Big Sky Publishing
