Janet Frame

Mona minim cover

Mona Minum and the Smell of the Sun

It was a great privilege to be asked to illustrate Janet Frame’s only book for children. 

Mona Minim had been illustrated before (very beautifully) by the well known British illustrator, Robin Jacques. But it is very difficult to make an ant visually appealing to a child and my job was to come up  with drawings that were a little more accessible for this New Zealand edition.

The drawings and roughs for this book are now held in the Hocken Collections, in Dunedin
