THE KINDIE AWARD FOR “FAVOURITE ILLUSTRATOR” GOES TO

IT’S A TIE!

ELLY MACKAY
Illustrator of Butterfly Park

JULIE MORSTAD
Illustrator of Swan: : The Life and Dance of Anna Pavlova


Two very different styles, two brilliant illustrators.

Elly MacKay (top, in colour) creates magnificent hand-painted, cut paper dioramas, lights them meticulously and photographs them to create pictures the likes of which we’ve never seen before in picture books. Page after page after page is breath-taking, and the tenth flip through Butterfly Park is even more awe-inspiring than the first.

Julie Morstad (bottom) is the creator of crafty, whimsical illustrations that feel like friends. She has a unique knack for being both epic and quaint at the same time.

Always an MVP.
