The Curious Evolution of the Flying Whale

4 July 2020 12:30pm

David Elliot, Port Chalmers based award-winning children’s author/illustrator and creator of Snark, Sydney and the Sea Monster, and Sydney and the Whalebird to name a few, discusses how living by the sea and its wildlife has influenced his work.

In this illustrated presentation, David explores the theme of evolution, giving a behind the scenes look of how imaginary ideas evolve through different mutations and responses to circumstances and stimuli, just like living things. He’ll demonstrate the various permutations of his well-known flying whale images followed by an opportunity for questions.
