Gus Gordon (Illustrator, Author)
Gus's illustrations are known for their loose and energetic line work, mixed media and humour. His writing is always anthropomorphic – where animals take the place of humans in the narrative. He attributes this to his love of Kenneth Grahame's Wind in The Willows.
Gus's first picture book, Wendy, is about a motorcycle-riding stunt chicken and was selected as a Children's Book Council of Australia (CBCA) Notable Book in the 2010 Book of the Year Awards.
His new picture book is set in New York and is called Herman and Rosie.
Gus lives with his wife and three children on the Northern beaches of Sydney.
