Leonard the Lyrebird has launched!

Thanks to everyone who came on Sunday to support us. There was standing room only in the end and Jodie and I couldn't be happier with the response. If you'd like to buy a copy and can't get it at your local bookshop yet (ask them and they might stock it for you), follow this link to buy directly through Jodie: http://www.jodiemcleod.com/books.html

New bits and pieces

I managed to finish Leonard the Lyrebird a few weeks ago and have been busy relocating my studio (which has cleared out a few cobwebs) and working on some new bits and pieces.  I've really been enjoying painting in gouache after working in gouache for 'Leonard', so I thought I'd keep the ball rolling and do some other illustrations in the same medium. Here are two new ones. The first is a whimsical landscape and the second is an illustrated map for the Blue Mountains Makers (of which I am a part). I finished it today so thought I'd share!
