Books and illustration
I have written and illustrated a number of books and have also worked as a commissioned illustrator. Email me here with ideas for any illustration projects you'd like to discuss.
Currently I produce an exclusive monthly cartoon page for the NZ-produced positive cultural magazine BiograView and am writing more about my personal transformation through art.

Lulu Moo and the Mystery of the Big Belly
Written and illustrated by established artists Charlotte Giblin and Wendy Walls, this is an energetic story about two friends on a New Zealand farm: Tim and his favourite cow, Lulu Moo.
The illustrations are unique and bold, full of character and humour which will appeal to a wide demographic and age range. The unique collage-style cartoons recall traditional hand-drawn and painted illustrations while capturing a modern energy and wit.
