Brent is a Brisbane-based illustrator whose illustrations are filled with wit, charm, block colours and loose lines, inspiring nostalgia for the children’s books and advertising campaigns of the 1950s and 1960s.
Brent recently illustrated the children’s book Get Me Out of Here! Foolish and Fearless Convict Escapes written by Pauline Deeves and published by Allen and Unwin.
Brent’s first children’s book was the acclaimed Koalas Like To … written by Shae Millward and published by the State Library QLD as part of a series of 12 books created especially for children aged 0–5 as part of the First 5 Forever initiative. Koalas Like To ... was a finalist in the 2021 ABDA Awards for Best Designed Children’s Illustrated Book.
