One competition that I couldn’t ignore to participate in was SCBWI’s Tomie dePaola Award. The premise was to illustrate the opening scene of Heidi. The text can be found here.

My mind’s eye immediately conjoured up majestic mountains – images not readily forgotten from my travels through Switzerland. Offset the grey and white tones of the mountains with deep shades of green and add a colourful array of field flowers and I’m good to go! The composition is highly organized – a conscious decision based on those knitted Scandenavian sweaters – where shape and colour are repeated.

This is the result…

The actual results of the competition are here.
