More Annual sneak-peekiness

The Gecko Annual has 41 collaborators and is out now, and almost sold out, so go grab a copy for kissy-mass if you're near a quality book store (in New Zealand). Or here...
For more peeks, contributor bios and extra activities not in the book (like a colouring-in version of this map) go to the official Annualannual site.

This is a part of a three-spread story. The editors asked for something with a map, and let me wander off.

Spot The Similarities

The first Annual from Gecko, Edited by Kate De Goldi and Susan Paris, is being launched tonight. It's already in stores, but this will be the official knees up. I contributed a couple of features to it, including this Spot-The-Differences piece. The left side of the image came out very dark in print, due to a mystery file switcharoo, so I'm posting it here for any readers who have been driven to frustration trying to find all the similarities. Only identical possessions count, which excludes the desks, beds, shelves, walls etc.

If you want the cheat sheet it can be found on the website. Under Downloads.

School Journal scribbles

A couple of recent illustrations for the School Journal. One that is basically my dream home, and another of New Zealand's most popular big bird, the Moa, before it was driven to extinction and subsequently appropriated by the creators of Sesame Street. The Children's Television Workshop has no scruples.

spot the diff

Another Spot The Difference doodle for Wild Things, Forest & Bird's kids magazine. There's 10 differences I think. The little dude is a NZ Snapping Shrimp which has an oversized claw so powerful that the force from one snap sends out a shock wave of greater decibels than a rock concert, stunning the shrimp's prey so it can just drag the comatose victim back to it's tiny lair and devour at will.
