Hannah’s Grandpa needed a special illustration for a special birthday. After a childhood of summer holidays spent with him at Charteris Bay on Banks Peninsula, drawing something beautifully beach-themed was a no-brainer. Happy Birthday Grandpa!

Charteris Bay - I think this place is summer to me. The happiest bits of childhood crammed into a few weeks every year. The smell of gum-trees and mudflats and the old makeup in the dressups. Searching for crabs and catseye snails and sea glass treasure. Messing about in boats, on body boards, in the water. The sound of swooping kereru as they come clumsily into land, the cawing of laughing aunties, and the way cicadas steal your "S"s. Endless summer days playing with swarms of cousins. Yep, it's a pretty special place.
