This illustration is probably my favourite one from Charlie's Dirt Day because I included lots of personal touches. Several of the characters in this spread made appearances in my first picture book, Bye, Bye Butterflies, such as the lady in the yellow cardigan on the left, the little boy pulling the wagon and the little girl in the right corner with the green ribbon in her hair. I thought it would be nice for the children who were familiar with the other book to make those connections.
The Silk Road Spice Merchant and have been extremely supportive of my illustrative career and my previous book.
