Winner of the Billie B Brown drawing competition

Hardie Grant Egmont ran a Billie B Brown drawing competition recently and had the extremely difficult task of choosing a winner. Eventually they chose this entry from 'Karen in New Zealand'. Isn't is great? I'll have to drop into HGE HQ some time soon to see all the other beautiful drawings that were sent in.
