It may sound strange to find out that I have never met the illustrator of the Dirkle Smat books. Craig Howarth lives on a completely different continent! As a young man his family moved from England to South Africa, and that is where he continues to make his home. Luckily we are in an age of electronic wizardry, so he is able to read my manuscripts via e-mail and send back his illustrations over the internet.
Check out his website here to see the amazing work he does. Not only does he illustrate children’s books but he has created artwork in many different formats.
