BookFest Fever!

It's Book Festival time! I am the official Book Festival Illustrator. For this year’s poster competition CBI are asking you to come up with a name for the book-eating monster who appears on the Children’s Book Festival poster. You could win some fantastic prizes for your school or library! Enter here!

For my BookFest tour dates I'll be visiting libraries in Dublin and Cork this year. I am also one of the illustrators exhibiting at Images Beyond Borders, a new exhibition of illustrations from children’s literature, featuring work by Irish and Austrian illustrators. It is the result of an exciting collaboration between the Irish children’s books laureate, Laureate na nÓg, Siobhán Parkinson, and the Austrian Embassy, and will run for three weeks. The exhibition of orignal art including the Book Eating Monster opens at The No Grants Gallery in Temple Bar this Friday at 7pm. Info here.

Hi Niamh. LOVE the poster, you're fantastic!!! I see your posts and it's so great to see you doing so well. I feel awful saying "we must meet up". We must, but when I don't know. I really feel like an Artists Day soon though. Is there any day that suits you ... if you fancy meeting up that is ? :O) M X
ps I have a really cute book to giveaway on my blog about freehand embroidery - you might like it.

Hi Michelle!!!! Thank you so much! I would love to meet up. I work in town now and I am there most Wednesdays and Thursdays and we could meet up afterwards for eats? Or I am off most Mondays so we could have a day time meet then either? I'll check out your competition now. See you soon! xx N
