Hi Emily…
Thank you for sending out the EOI via email for Gold Coast Story City.
Yes unfortunately I DONT live on the Gold Coast. I will tick the box to get newsletters in the future.
Though I did light up when you mentioned the Gold Coast as I illustrate the park maps for Village Roadshow Theme Parks (which are on the Gold Coast technically).. SEA WORLD..MOVIE WORLD..WET N WILD. You may have seen them. Lots of buildings..people and attractions…polar bears or whatever..That of course may make no difference to anything at all ..!

Even though I am basically a childrens book illustrator (see website)
I have also illustrated (many years ago now) the old South Bank Parklands maps . So do have to mix creative stuff with architectural stuff in a way. So please contact me if you think something suits.– GLEN

    Hi Glen,

    Thanks for getting in touch, a shame you aren’t Gold Coast based, those maps for the parks are awesome! I would love to do an adventure around one of them, but of course it’s always about convincing people to take you on. I’m glad you’re getting the newsletters because I’m sure we’ll have plenty of EOIs for someone with your talents in the future!
