Tony is a passionate illustrator with a love of the absurd and the silly. Tony and author Nick Falk are responsible for the ‘Saurus Street’, ‘Billy is a Dragon’, Samurai vs Ninja’ and the “How to..’ series, which have received positive reviews from Speech Pathology Australia and educators of early and reluctant readers. The highly illustrated and engaging illustrations help children to continue to turn pages and continue to read. Tony has filled pages with vegetable smashing tyrannosauruses; fish slapping Samurai, time travelling triceratops, Young Shakespeare and kung-fu fighting worms. Not content with these creations, he has created armies of chickens, adventurous dragons, sneaky werewolves and dogs of all shapes and sizes. Tony is now working hard to complete his PhD at the University of Canberra.

Tony knows he’s very lucky to be living his childhood dream of being able to colour in all day, and feels his 10,000 hours of line work practice has finally paid dividends. He has also received international recognition for his works at illustration competitions in America, Italy, Japan and England.

  1. Hi Tony,

    I just wanted to let you know I got a call from Sonia Andersen at the Whitsunday Voices Festival and they want me to be a presenter next year. This is very exciting for me and really all down to your recommendation. Thanks you so much for doing that. I appreciate it hugely.

    Maybe I’ll see you at the SCWBI Xmas gathering? Hope so.




  2. Hi Tony

    I need an author, illustrator for next year. I am based at Belrose PS. on the Northern Beaches in Sydney. I know that you live in Canberra. Would this be a problem for you ? Do you have somewhere to stay in Sydney/. I don’t really want to pay your travel costs as it is very hard to get money out of my students. What do you think

    Thanks Kirsten Wedlock
