The new works by authors Dr Ross Watkins and Paul O’Sullivan will feature in a Telling Stories: the illustrated book exhibition to be officially opened by USC Associate Professor of Creative Writing Gary Crew at 6.30pm.
The exhibition will also showcase works by USC graduate Dean Jacobs and Victorian illustrator Naomi Turvey, along with five illustrations by Shaun Tan from Dr Crew’s private collection.
USC Gallery curator Dawn Oelrich said illustrated books, which were once aimed primarily at children, were now produced for young adults and older readers.
“This exhibition looks at the aspects and writing techniques contributing to the illustrated book and its place in modern literature,” she said.
“There are samples of illustration from traditional graphite and paint, to scraperboard (also called scratchboard), to digital and airbrush techniques.
“We have a great year of exhibitions ahead of us and this one is significant because Creative Writing is one of the fastest-growing areas of study at USC, and how to write for the illustrated book is one study component available for our students.”
