We establish q-analogues of Taylor series expansions in special polynomial bases for functions analytic in bounded domains and for entire functions whose maximum modulus M(r;f) satisfies 1n M(r;f) ≤A 1n2 r. This solves the problem of constructing such entire functions from their values at [aqn + q-n /a]/2, for 0<q<1. Our technique is constructive and gives an explicit representation of the sought entire function. Applications to q-series identities are given.
