Prompted by my daughter Alex to get blogging I’m going to publish my first post – Now! before the clock strikes 12.
Bob the Railway Dog On Saturday 3 August we celebrated the launch of Bob the Railway Dog (Black Dog Books) with author, Corinne Fenton, and around 50 other people squeezed into the Railfan shop in Mont Albert, Melbourne. My husband Andrew illustrated the story.
Bob the Railway Dog “is the true story of a little dog who had adventure in his heart and the rattle of the rails in his soul. In the early days of the railway, when shiny new tracks were opening vast areas of Australia, there was an adventurous dog who was part of it all. As the tracks were being laid he was there on the train – riding in his favourite spot on top of the Yankee engine. Everyone knew him. He was Bob the Railway Dog”.
Andrew and Corrine cutting the cake
Andrew talked about how he did the illustrations using his iPad
Bob the Dog was a Koolie x. At the launch, Smithy the Koolie, was very interested in what Andrew had to say about drawing Bob.
