The Millennium Tree - The Book
The Millennium Tree - The Book
Here is a selection of spreads of the illustrations I did for the book "Taketakerau The Millennium Tree", published in New Zealand in December 2011. There were 36 in all, completed from scratch in a year.

The author's brief was that she did not want "anything cartoon-like" as she called it, and she had already turned down several illustrators. For this reason, I kept the works pretty much middle of the road - bearing in mind also that while this is technically a children's book, it is supposed to appeal to all ages as well.

Acrylic on board 15"x 20".

New Zealand, Aotearoa, maori, history, landscape, tree, puriri, wildlife.

Nicely done! Will we see it in book stores or online?

It's in bookstores here in New Zealand right now. In fact, she's thinking of doing a second printing. Whether it will be released overseas I don't know at this stage. I will let people know if it is.
