Original Artwork Auction

The ASA (Australian Society of Authors), in partnership with Micador and the ABC, is excited to announce that the One Word One Day auction site has now been launched. This wonderful event raising funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation will be held on Tuesday 25 September. I've contributed three original works to this, along with many other prominent Australian illustrators of books for children, and welcome your bids!

Full details on the auction, as well as images and details of each of the works and artists involved in the project can be found at
