Hi I'm Judy Watson. I'm a Melbourne based illustrator and artist, working from my home studio. In April 2015 my latest picture book Thunderstorm Dancing written by Katrina Germein was launched. The book took nearly three years to illustrate and is rendered in ink and watercolour on litho paper with digital overlays added on the computer. You can see lots of snippets about the making of Thunderstorm Dancing on my blog. The illustrations have since won a Highly Commended Award in the 2015 Illustrators Australia Awards, and the book has been made a CBCA Notable Book for 2016.
