Author/illustrator Lucinda Gifford draws a duck

This is me. I’m a children’s book author and illustrator based in Melbourne Australia, and I spend a lot of my time drawing in front of an audience. I draw in notebooks, on digital screens, on easels and on huge bits of cartridge paper stuck to the walls and windows.

For those interested, I keep a blog called The Big Bad Book here, with my thoughts on the children’s book industry and on creating books. It’s not updated very often at the moment, but most info is still relevant.
Publisher clients include:

Scholastic; Harper Collins; Omnibus Books; Five Mile Press; Lothian Hachette; Walker Books; Allen and Unwin

For book-related work, I’m represented by Curtis Brown Australia: claref@curtisbrown.com.au
