MPRG custom illustrations for greeting cards
Being asked to do illustrations for a special event is always exciting, but this request was even more incredible: greeting cards for the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery!
Back in 2014, MPRG was hosting a Lynley Dodd exhibition of her illustrations (author and illustrator of well-loved kids book Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy). They approached me, hoping to stock a few of my cards in their gallery store for the exhibition as they loved my animal illustrations – and being local to the gallery was a big bonus.
What eventuated was a new collection of four dog illustrations, drawing inspiration from Hairy Maclary and friends. These illustrations went onto greeting cards, and sold out at the gallery! I was gobsmacked and honoured to fill another order for them.
My animal illustrations have been loved over the years by a growing fan base, and I hope to keep adding to the collection!
