At the exhibition of children’s picture books featured on the previous blog we were pleased to see the work of one of our favourite artists, Kyle Hughes-Odgers. You can see his outdoor public art in lots of locations around Perth and Fremantle, including this large painting on a wall inside 140 William St, a complex of shops and cafes above Perth Underground station.

Kyle Hughes-Odgers has also published four books for children, all with Fremantle Press. One is a colouring book and one, “Ten Tiny Things” was done in collaboration with Meg McKinlay. His two latest publications, “On a Small Island” and “Can a Skeleton have an X-Ray” are all his own work.
