Meet our newest illustrator!

We’re very pleased to introduce you to Annette Flexman, the newest member of our Illustration by Annette Flexmanillustration team! Annette joins Greg Mitchell, who has been our sole (and hardworking!) illustrator since issue 1.

We asked Annette to tell us a bit about herself. And here’s what she said:

I discovered I loved drawing in early primary school. I remember drawing lots of farm animals, as we had lots of pets at home, and then moved on to space ships and space creatures as I got older!

I recently discovered watercolour pencils which are just fantastic to work with. I’m very excited about joining the Alphabet Soup team, especially because I get to read all those fantastic stories and poems from the young readers out there!

You can see a sample of Annette’s artwork up at the top of the post there. She’s been very busy with pencils, paper and scissors flying – getting pages ready for issue 4 (out mid-August 2009). Don’t miss it!

You can order copies of issue 4, (or subscribe to Alphabet Soup!) by going to our website www.alphabetsoup.net.au.
