ILLuSTRATOR: sarah dunk
Sarah Dunk is an illustrator with a passion for figurative-based projects — the kind of projects to which she brings the lively and engaging characters who emerge so readily from her drawing board.
In her long career as an artist (starting with drawing in kindergarten and after many stints at art school), Sarah has done illustrations for children’s books (both educational and trade), magazines (The Big Issue in particular), newspapers (notably The Age and The Australian), the Victorian State Government and advertising agencies.
Sarah has worked closely with Nelly Thomas over the past five years, designing and illustrating promotional material for Nelly’s many gigs and projects. During this time they have developed a professional working relationship and a good understanding of each other. Although they think differently in many ways, more often than not, this is a solution in itself: as Sarah says: ‘Nelly will say A and I will say B, but between us we have learned to find C’.
The many characters Sarah has drawn to bring to life Nelly’s Some Girls and Some Boys reflects the strong rapport of this productive writer-illustrator partnership.
Sarah lives with her husband and two girls in Melbourne, is slowly improving her basketball skills, and any spare time is spent renovating their 1950s house.
