Client: Donna Dwyer | Project: Onebird book cover illustration | Tools: Adobe Photoshop


A budgie fan myself, I was delighted to receive this book cover illustration brief from author Donna Dwyer, who was looking to self-publish her book. Onebird is a magical adventure story featuring a budgerigar as the main character and lots of wonderful Australian bush animals (mostly of the feathered variety) as supporting characters. Under Donna’s guidance, I worked with her closely to capture her vision for the cover. An essential part of the brief was to feature a magnificent gum tree and incorporate the colour palettes of the Australian outback.

You can read more about the process and see preliminary sketches on my blog.

Onebird can be purchased online here.
