Illustrator of whimsical scenes and recent arrival at The Clinic studios, Liz Anelli has wasted no time getting busy with a number of projects.
One of several works-in-progress is a picture storybook called Howzat written by Mike Lefroy for Walker Books Australia. Its a whirlwind World Tour delightfully combining a cricket game played in 12 different countries, ending up at the famous Mumbai stadium. Expected publishing date Autumn 2014. “This month I’m busy composing the pages and finding kids playing cricket to draw” Liz explains.
The next project has a distinct Newcastle focus. Mapping The Port Of Newcastle is a community art project driven by Liz which will result in a 4metre x 3metre illustrated map of Newcastle Harbour and its immediate suburbs that will be installed on an outside wall of the Maritime Centre at Honeysuckle in Spring. Liz is currently out researching, drawing up grain loaders and coal reclaimers. To keep up to date withe project head to mappingportnewcastle.wordpress.com
