"Whale of a lie" • http://goo.gl/0UTPPl
Copic multiliners & Derwent Graphitint watercolours on cotton.

With the waxing & waning of tools and options on Google plus, it seems there is no more 'Google Plus High Density Bing machine' - circles that I can alert to new posts. Or it's possible I just can't find where they've moved it to.

I'd love to learn more about Google+ 'collections' so I can better share scribblegraph stuff here. It seems to have become quite different with all the changes around here:) Does anyone know how I find a decent, concise primer?
 
Whale of a Liewww.scribblegraph.me/whaling/
Nice, short sharable link: http://goo.gl/0UTPPl (please share)

“Tasty science-meat!
The Antarctic Minke-treat!
Japanese Research.”

I utterly abhor this continued charade that the Japanese are whaling in our oceans in an effort to advance science; it is a ridiculously transparent fabrication. The Japanese are a highly intelligent people. They are formidable world leaders in fields of research and technologies. To imagine they have not already learnt all they can from a whale corpse beggars belief. Either their research scientists aren’t at all cut out of the fine fabric they’ve lead us to believe all these years, or there is another purpose behind this whale slaughter.

♥ Please share, and get involved! Bright Blue - the Police Commissioner's Fund for Sick Kids - are doing exceptionally important work in so many areas. It was my pleasure to illustrate their #Christmas  card this year =)

#BrightBlueXMAS
 
A very Bright Blue Christmas • http://goo.gl/zob9LU

This year’s Christmas card was illustrated for Bright Blue, The Police Commissioner’s Fund for Sick Kids. Being asked to create this card for Bright Blue was an honour and an absolute pleasure – all proceeds from sale of this card go towards Bright Blue. Yes, 100%.

Bright Blue does incredibly valuable work in so many areas: funding research, creating awareness, providing access to services and support in remote areas. In particular, their efforts in regional Western Australia with FASD are very close to my heart.

Please, if you’re not in a position to support this year, you could share the scribblegraph blog - http://goo.gl/zob9LU - on social media with the tag #BrightBlueXMAS – that’s free, and it helps enormously!

If you're in #Perth you can also drop into Police HQ and purchase cards in person - important information on how to do that is in the post. 

Purchase card packs here: https://goo.gl/fL8wy3
Please share this page: http://goo.gl/zob9LU tag #BrightBlueXMAS

♥ Thank you

Hello new Google+ and thank you to +matthew rappaport for helping me "opt in" - what a convoluted, abstract exercise THAT was.

Matt said I have to try posting something, so: meet Neelix, our friend's pup.

How are you finding this iteration of Google+ ?? Thoughts?

Will have to play more but so far I'm not as disillusioned as all the comments I'm seeing today. Found it a bit slow on my laptop but otherwise okay. Definitely will dig in more later.

Here's a wonderful article I found on #BBC today. Photographers will get something out of this =)

I found my father living on the street - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-34420194
Law student and blogger Diana Kim photographed her father's struggle with mental illness when he was living rough on the streets of Hawaii.

Wow, what an incredible journey. It often feels like stories such as this, people are very lucky with the outcome but it's actually a lot of hard work and perseverance. She had so much internal strength.
