A cow and a computer for Melbourne's Child

I am pretty happy with this drinking cow above that I painted for Melbourne's Child (Sydney's Child etc.) to illustrate learning about volume for an article on distance education in country Australia.
Admittedly there were some trials and tribulations with this pair, which involved simplifying a concept which had included an akubra hat and mother wearing an apron (but I love aprons!!!).   

Illustration can be a fraught business.

There is a lovely nostalgic quality to these. Like old golden books.
