Hi, my name is Vaughan Duck.
I love drawing pictures that make kids giggle.
I am a children’s book Illustrator based in Adelaide South Australia.
Without knowing it, kids throughout Australia have grown up looking at my pictures because I have illustrated over 300 textbooks and readers for educational publishers.
I have a quirky style that is both humorous and heartfelt.
The shrinking world allows me to work on interesting projects anywhere around the Globe. I have been working non-stop in Children’s Publishing for over 30 years
I love working on picture books and junior readers but will consider any reasonable project. As a result, I have also created step-by-step props that get photographed for craft books.

I produce illustrations for:
- Picture Books
- Junior Readers
