Wooh – Did you know today was National Bilby Day?

You should spend the day appreciating the cuteness of our little adorable marsupial, and at the same time undersanding its endangered due to feral predators and pests in their environment.

I spent a moment today drawing some bilby character concepts as I’ve often wondered about adding the Bilby to my cute Aussie characters. Ringo and Z are enjoying celebrating the day with him – what do you reckon?

Wallace and Gromit Exhibition, Melbourne

It was VERY inpsiring and amazing to visit the Wallace and Gromit and Friends exhibit at the ACMI in Melbourne this week.

I have always been a big fan of Aardman Animations and it was fantastic being able to see the models, sets, sketches, behind the scenes footage and even get a chance of doing some animation.

This is well worth the visit, I literally spent 6 hours taking it in all.

Short break in Melbourne

This week I had a lovely but cold short break in Melbourne, and took some photos of what inspired my arty side, which included AC/DC Lane, the Zine exhibition at the State Library, and sketching time at the Royal Botanic Gardens.

The highlight for me though was the Wallace and Gromit exhibition and once Ive sorted through my many pictures I will post those at the weekend.

Here are the first lots of photos that I have posted into my Facebook page:
