Due to the rain, and therefore, football being cancelled, I was able to go to Kerry Argent’s book launch – The Fabulous Finola Fox – at the State Library on 28th April.
Kerry Argent is an amazing artist and it was very interesting listening to her as well as editor Lisa Riley and designer Karen Scott talk about how Finola was produced. The process started in 2004, and after lots of discussions, colour/picture changes and attention to detail, is now finished! Kerry said that each illustration took her two weeks to complete!
At the launch we also got to view thumbnails, proofs, originals, and drawings. The evening finished with lovely wines and cheeses to enjoy.
