"Flea in the Sea" 15cm x 40cm

...it was bloody hard to scan this in! I've had this Arches pad for a long time & had waited until I had something specific in mind for these dimensions.

+Yoon-Mi Kim and I had a sea-side holiday not long ago and that's when this idea came to me. It's something just for her <3

"Wood" for #illustrationFridayhttp://goo.gl/Sdwt70

...Firstly, I HATE that they broke the Google Plus High Density Bing Machine. I hear it muttered in dark places that Google+ is being slowly decommissioned and that really makes me sad. It has always been a great place to share illustration. These days, I'm most active on my own website and on Twitter. Say hello there, I love chatting while I scribble. Anyway, about this scribble »

“Wood” • for illustration Friday, week of April 15-21. Copic MultiLiner SP 0.05 & 0.1 on Arches 300GSM 100% cotton. This week’s theme evoked a strong image in my mind and I decided to get involved in the weekly challenge. Trees and water are two of my favourite things to draw, perhaps because they’re two of my favourite things in life. I could quite happily live in a tree house out in a forest somewhere, far off the grid – and spend my days in a nearby ocean with fish to talk to and a kraken for a guard dog.

The more I get out and actually look at the world, the less of it there is to see. I have to travel a long way from my little home to take my kid out to see real forest. Near me, it’s all being torn down with the spread of the great ‘urban sprawl‘. There’s not a decent climbing tree with coo-ey, and there’s certainly nowhere I’d be able to teach her how to successfully hunt insects just to see what they’re all about. All the stuff I had available to me as a kid: it was marvellous. And unless you live half way to nowhere, it’s just plain gone now.

As for the rabbits in this illustration: you can come to your own conclusions about their story. If you have one, I’d love to hear it. I just don’t think it is the kind of material that will make a kids’ book.

Anyway, this is what I saw when I read the word “wood” this week, and here it is. Flea says I should put a bit of watercolour on this one, but I’m undecided. I think I’ll go sleep on it:) I’ve been unwell for nearly a week now. That is properly unlike me and I’m so tired of it. I’m off back down the rabbit hole for a nap.

Flea's Daemonwww.scribblegraph.me/daemon/

Recently, we were packing to head over east on a little holiday and Flea needed a book. She had recently caught up to where Robin Hobb has left the Farseer series and asked me for something new. I suggested she follow Robin Hobb with Philip Pullman‘s His Dark Materials, and she is devouring it. She now has a strong desire to meet her daemon… haven’t we all:)

So we spent some time discussing what our daemon’s would look like... (read more: www.scribblegraph.me/daemon/)

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.

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
