I am proud to reveal the cover for my picture book Meet Sidney Nolan with Random House Australia illustrated by Sandra Eterovic. The illustrations are absolutely amazing, making this picture book a work of art! The official release date is October 1st, 2015, though it will be released a little earlier. Details on the launch and an exclusive interview with Sandra Eterovic will follow in the next few months.
