Artists_illustration_AdamAbout Adam…

Adam Wallace was once an Engineer and then a Primary School teacher and tossed it all in to write children’s books. In the first year after leaving teaching he was shown approximately 17 engineering jobs and 15 teaching jobs by his supportive but worried parents, Jack and Gill.

Adam has since had 50 books published (it will be 50 by the end of the year, at least). He has had books on the New York Times and USA Today Bestseller Lists, and has also had books shortlisted for the KOALA, WAYRBA and CBCA Awards.

Adam has visited over 300 schools and libraries, and is very tired. It has proven an amazing way for him to be able to connect with his audience, though, being face to face in an increasingly online world. This has enabled Adam to build a strong following in schools around Victoria, with students and teachers alike.

Adam has worked with amazing illustrators such as James Hart, Heath McKenzie, Serena Geddes, Andy Elkerton and Garth Bruner.

James Hart is an award winning Illustrator, Comic Artist and Avid Doodler who grew up loving comics, cartoons and drawing.

As a child, James was raised on a healthy balanced diet of comics, video games, cartoons, action figures and Lego. It wasn’t long before he realised that you could draw for a living and began his successful illustration journey in 2003. Since then, he has worked on many different projects from toy designs to book illustrations including work on the animated series of The Day my Butt went Psycho and the thrilling You Choose book series by George Ivanoff.

James has also worked on other popular book series with Tim Harris, illustrating his book series, Mr Bambuckle’s Remarkables, as well as illustrating MacPark’s D-Bot Squad series and Cosentino’s The Mysterious World of Cosentino series.

In 2018 James illustrated the Premiers’ Reading Challenge posters in Victoria and is the official ambassador and illustrator for Scholastic’s National Family Reading Month 2019.
