Oslo Davis: Children’s Book Festival artist in residence

Last Sunday, we held our annual Children’s Book Festival (in partnership with the State Library of Victoria). From 10am until 4pm, the State Library Lawns, our Performance Space, Little Lonsdale Street and various venues inside the library were overtaken by an extremely busy programme of events and activities.

More than 15,000 kids (and their adults) joined us for the day –a record turnout! We slept well that evening.

Amongst the throng, you may have noticed a gentleman quietly observing, his wrist whipping across the pages of his sketch pad. That man was, of course, Oslo Davis – our artist in residence for the day.

Today, we’re pleased to share with you Oslo’s illustrations from the Festival. Were you there? Is one of those people you?
