A few weeks ago I bought a small ship in a bottle at a little boutique shop in Bendigo. I bought this whimsical little piece as inspiration for my next children's picture book. I'd love to do a follow on from my last solo book project, The Box Boy. It's something I've wanted to do for ages, but just haven't had the time, work and everything else in life has just taken over for the last 3-4 years. About a month ago I also turned the ripe of age of 30... Eeek! So now that I'm all wise and knowledgeable (joking), I think its time to dust off my watercolours and set sail on a new creative adventure.
The photo below is a watercolour illustration of the ship in a bottle that I bought as inspiration. With a bit of luck there might be more to come, and a sequel to The Box Boy.
