Some days you wake up to interesting requests from across the globe. Back in February I received a lovely request from a school in North Carolina to us the cover image for my ‘Hello!’ book on a fundraising tee-shirt for their International Festival. As a very culturally diverse school they identified with the concepts of the book and the cover design, It also helped that their school mascot was a koala.
After they made some modification to put in their mascot over the koala character on the book, they produced a wonderful tee shirt that sold 6 times the normal amount (based on previous years – sales).
What I really like is days like to today when I receive photos of the event and I can see the smiling faces and my drawing have been used in ways that I never expected when I first created them.
