Miss Eccles is on a giant bauble with a Santa hat on, while Herbert is riding a star ornament and Lynnie is hanging off a giant candy cane. A large red ribbon weaves between the scene and characters in the background.

The pattern features lovable characters and cheerful winter scenes from the popular children's book, 'Winter in Ballarat'. The characters and scenes are rendered in a playful and vibrant style, adding a delightful touch to the baby onesie. The onesie is an adorable and stylish addition to any baby's wardrobe, with the pink color complementing the cheerful pattern. The image evokes a sense of joy and playfulness, capturing the essence of the beloved children's book.

Winter in Ballarat

Behind the magical story of Winter in Ballarat is the world I illustrated. Explore a selected sample of pages and scenes from the popular Children's book.

This book was my first ever foray into children’s literature and it had been on my mind for two years prior to the release. I had always dreamed of illustrating a children’s book but was at the time running an IT and design company that left little time for personal creativity. In the downtime of lockdowns I started illustrating The Wendouree Pals. A cover was designed and shortly after a story was born. It has truly felt like a community effort, each page is reminiscent of the magic of Ballarat. It brings me much joy to share these illustrations.
