This Sunday 2 June head over to Brisbane City Council’s marquee at the Green Heart Fair in Chermside to see my painted boards of a long necked turtle and sugar glider. Poke your head through the boards and have your picture taken as the characters themselves!
Also, whilst you are in the BCC marquee have a look for the 8 cartoon illustrations of turtle and glider as they demonstrate the various areas of sustainability. Have fun!
On Sunday 2nd June is the next Green Heart Fair in Brisbane, at 7th Brigade Park, Chermside. Once again my Turtle and Sugar Glider characters will be out in the Brisbane City Council marquee. There are 8 different illustrations of Turtle and Glider representing the four different key areas of sustainability (Backyards, Community, Homes and Natural Areas – see if you can spot them all!). And also the two life size boards of Turtle and Glider where you can stick your head through and have your photograph taken as one of them (great for your Facebook profile picture!).
This month has been super exciting! At the end of September I was contacted by Brisbane City Council to provide some artwork for their marquee at the Green Heart Fair. This fair focuses on sustainability and environmental initiatives which is very exciting being an enthusiast of all things Australian wildlife!
They had two face-cut out boards that required some attention. So the first part of the brief was to create two characters that will go on to the boards.

So along came a Long Necked Turtle and a Sugar Glider!!
Then there was also part two of the brief. With the two painted boards to be outside the marquee, inside the marquee they required cartoon illustrations of the characters performing different actions of sustainability.

So after an exciting challenging month 8 cartoon images were provided and the boards painted. The Fair is tomorrow and I cannot wait to go and see all the illustrations ‘in action’!! The boards were completed a few hours ago and here is a picture of my head in each:

I’ll do another blog tomorrow showing everything in situation and a look at the cartoon illustrations.
