Remember the Zombilby (Zombie Bilby) I created a few weeks ago?

Well here is some work in progress on that illustration. I decided to go back to basics and use pencils and markers to colour it in prior to scanning it in and touching it up in Photoshop. Do you like it?

Next thing is to put it on some merchandise in time for Halloween in Australia!

It’s a bit of a WIP illustration as I’m tempted to colour it in and convert it into a Halloween greeting card…

Wahoo today is Save the Koala Day and therefore I was hoping to find a koala today but unfortunately to no avail.  To tell the truth I haven’t seen one in quite some time.  It just really highlights the endangered status of these beautiful marsupials that even my sightings are becoming rare from when I was seeing them every couple of weeks at Whites Hill Reserve.  So we must ensure we protect and save our koalas!

Therefore my cartoon illustration highlights this as it is a perfect branch for a koala to sit on but there is no koala…
