I take a lot of enjoyment and inspiration from reading the Batman Black and White Series. I am currently getting stuck into Volume 3, and as always when reading Batman I like to draw him too:
For my birthday, Hazel sponsored a Koala for me! She is called Peach and lives at Featherdale Wildlife Park.
And (I think) this picture is of her:
Whilst at Featherdale we were also able to have a photo opportunity with a koala (this isn’t Peach).
Then out came the sketchbook:
On my birthday we had an amazing meal at the Gunyah restaurant which is surrounded within trees and more trees. And what lives in trees? POSSUMS!
As we were leaving the restaurant one little possum came out to wish me a Happy Birthday and struck a few poses for me to take some photos of him!
Happy New Year everybody!
Here are a few sketches to kick off my blog for 2010.
Between Christmas and New Year we stayed in a little place called Kangaroo Valley, and I was inspired to sketch the view from our veranda:
In Sydney we went to see the amazing fireworks for New Year – and they were amazing!! We settled in at our viewpoint at 3pm and then waited eagerly….
So this gave me a chance to sketch the view that we had of the Harbour Bridge:
And finally, on a beach – the exact view I had of my leg (and you can see the shadow that my sketchbook created!):
I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas from Oz!!
This is my Possum Christmas Present tag- please feel free to print it off and use it on all your presents! 🙂
I also wish everyone a safe and wonderful New Year, and I will be back on my Blog
here in Jan 2010 – so see you then!
On the left we have how December would be if we were still in the UK. But on the right is December in Australia! Seems strange to being having bbqs so close to Christmas, but it is great!
Having eczema, I decided to create a Super Hero who could help – Dermo Man!! Being a tube of cream, he is fully loaded and ready to tackle all factors affecting eczema! In this picture he is fighting an angry mob of dust mites!
I just love cockatoos (nearly as much as possums!). With their big cheeky eyes and perfect white feathers you have to admire them.
So as soon as I got home on this day I had to draw one!
I have always liked Usagi when he appeared the the original Turtles cartoons back in the 80’s. Since I have been in Canberra I have discovered the delights of Usagi’s in his own comics, created by Stan Sakai, which are just fantastic!
I think on this day I must have been missing the times in the UK when I went to alt/metal clubs. I have my music here, but I have not yet found any alt/metal venues. Does anyone know if there are any alt/metal venues in Canberra?
