Charles Fuge has been writing and illustrating children's books since 1988. His first picture book, 'Bush Vark's First Day Out', won The Macmillan Prize and was published whilst he was in his second year at Camberwell School of Art. A year later it went on to win The Mother Goose Award for best newcomer to children's picture books. Since then he has illustrated over 40 picture books and was runner up in the 2001 Kate Greenaway Medal for 'Sometimes I like to curl up in a ball'.
Now, for the very first time, Charles is making his original illustrations available to the art market, and we are very pleased to be able to bring you this magnificent collection. This particular piece is featured in the book 'Flea's Best Friend', first published by Macmillan in 1994.
The Shar Pei, or Chinese Shar-Pei, is a breed of dog best known for its distinctive deep wrinkles and blue-black tongue. The breed itself originates from China and was first used as a general-purpose farm dog. It's name roughly translates to "sand skin", in reference to the texture of its short, rough coat.
Size: 44cm x 27cm (unframed).
