Dale Newman

Hello and welcome to my site!

I am a Sydney based illustrator and artist with a fundamental passion for creating soulful images.
I majored in printmaking at university and was particularly drawn to black and white lithography
(see artwork folio). Dreams were the source of imagery for these works, which now live in various private collections.

Since 2007 I’ve been freelancing, mostly illustrating for the children’s educational market. I am currently illustrating my first trade picture book - KidGlovz- a graphic novel by Julie Hunt, to be published in September 2015 by Allen & Unwin. I also had the pleasure of illustrating the cover
of Julie’s last novel, Song for a Scarlet Runner (A&U 2013).

Books for children:
KidGlovz by Julie Hunt (forthcoming - Allen & Unwin September 2015)
Why Bears Have Short Tails retold by Elsie Nelley (Cengage Learning 2011)
Songbird by Claire Kamber (Blake Publishing 2010)

Other commissions:
Cengage Learning, Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER), Copeland Publishing
(Child Magazine), FableCroft Publishing, Five Islands Press, Newcastle Herald

Residency:
In 2013 I was the recipient of a residency at Pinerolo Children’s Book Cottage in Blackheath to
work on KidGlovz (supported by Margaret Hamilton and CAL)
