Australian artist Tom Jellett has illustrated a number of books for children including the extraordinarily successful My Dad Thinks He’s Funny by Katrina Germein.

Tom has also been included in the Communication Arts Illustration Annual 2012, the 3×3 Children’s Show No. 9, and the 2013 Illustrators Australia Awards.

We’re excited to share that Tom’s book illustrations have been recognized yet again – artwork for Whale in the Bath by Kylie Westaway has been included in Illustrators 56, an annual exhibition held in the Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators.

The show features works by leading contemporary illustrators worldwide, selected by a prestigious jury of professionals.

Whale in the Bath will be published in the United States this year, but in the meantime you can check out some of the adorable illustrations from the book below.

Congrats Tom!
