Drawing drawing...


Possum

I haven't put many of my drawings on the internets for a while since I started getting into putting together the work for my show, so I thought the above drawing (a practice for some finer detail points of a larger work) might be appreciated. I've been thinking about maybe making a book with all of my animal portraits in this series (with branches) in colour, but I'm not sure exactly who to go to to ask if they could publish it; (if you know of anyone who might be interested and could recommend them or ask them for me that would be really useful!).

It's beginning to get a little warmer here in Wellington (not that I've had much time to go outside), but I guess the more interesting/pertinent news is about the earthquake in Christchurh on the weekend. It is so good that no one died (except for a lemur at the zoo who drowned :( and hopefully the guy who had a chimney fall on him is OK. Tim and I awoke during the night to the earthquake, even though here we are fairly far away, so I can imagine that it must have been quite scary for the people where it hit. I'm a little upset at the poor quality of journalism which has been surrounding the event, but I guess that's true whenever anything dramatic happens.

Time for green tea.

O my soul - I love it....
Definitely do a book! I would buy it for sure...

Do you know I didn't even relaise how big the earthquake was or that it was serious until I saw it mentioned in American media!
Where are you John Campbell?

It all looks very nice, as always. The book also sounds like a great idea, I'd definitely be interested.

For book publishing, I just happened to see this the other day:

That's from last year but they seem like they'd be receptive to your your work and approachable too. That entry also mentions a book on self-publishing, which presents it as more appealing than I previously supposed. Maybe that's another option.
