Greeting Card, Notebook and Mug featuring Emu and Chook
My Easter Design this year features my cute characters Emu and Chook. Chook is feeling broody and decides to sit on emus egg. Emu responds saying he thinks the egg is his! It amuses me how my pet chooks sit on each others egg and I thought it would be funny if a chook decides to sit on a giant emu egg!
This design is available on a select three products in my online store: Greeting card, notebook and mug. To see these please click here, or to see my full range of Easter designs please click here…
Emu and Chook Easter Design Coloured In
Further to yesterdays Emu and Chook sketch here is the design coloured in with Photoshop and sized to a greeting card ready to upload in my RedBubble shop. I have added the words “I think that egg belongs to me” as the emu sees the chook is being broody with their egg and sitting on it haha!

4 things I learnt from the Aussie Backyard Bird Count
For the Aussie Backyard Bird Count in October I chose to do it in my lunchtimes at Whites Hill Reserve in Brisbane. I recorded four days and each day I learnt something and here’s what they were:
1. The native minor was more prevalent then I first thought. I see them a lot but when you start counting you realise just how many you see in 30 minutes. Which is a bit sad as these little territorial birds bully away other species so unfortunately there wasn’t as great a range of birds that I am sure the reserve could allow.
2. I need to know my bird calls. Just when I thought that I knew enough bird calls, I was wrong. I must be able to recognise around half a dozen, but each day there were around 2 or 3 calls I did not know.
3. Focus! One day I got carried away wondering whether a lump on a tree was a koala or a termite nest. I must have wondered for five minutes and missed a bird or two…
4. I miss emus. Haven’t seen a wild emu since I worked at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve in Canberra. Beautiful birds.
As I have just finished another sketchbook, I have realised I still have come sketches from my first sketchbook of 2016 waiting to be uploaded. And as there are so many I thought I’d do them in two posts.
These sketches are mainly from my lunchtime nature meanderings, and this post features non-koala sketches.
The first couple of illustrations are of ‘things’ that I saw and slightly manipulated them into weird and wonderful creatures.
The final three, is a tree that had an emu foot, a banksia and a lovely water dragon.
Here’s a cute illustration of an emu with chick for Easter! If you would like a card please visit my shop http://www.cafepress.com.au/eddcross/13434489
