The Australia SCBWI (Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators) asked each regional chapter here in the states to submitt a Hope card Illustration. To show our support to the many families there. I'm sure there will be many submissions and mine may or may not be chosen. I'll be sending it in today. I chose to paint some typical yet cuddly Australian animals. The Kangaroo is holding a young tree to symbolize new growth and of course rainbows always symbolize hope.
