I'm away from my studio at the moment and am unable to scan the painting in so instead I've taken a photo of it.
I believe that courage is relative to the degree of fear that someone faces. What is home and familar to one person is a place of possibly immense and unknown dangers to the next person. If we project what we think is safe onto someone else's idea of what is dangerous we immediately label them fearful but the truth is the caution that the person is taking as they face their fear is truly a demonstration of their courage.

A bit of a mile stone in my illustrating career has happened just recently. I currently have my first 4 illustrations all framed up and for sale at Retrospect Galleries in Byron Bay Australia.
I was blessed enough to have a random conversation with Bree who owns and runs the gallery and a month or so later I got to see my pictures with their spiffy new frames and we chatted $$ and it is all very exciting.
Above is a flyer for an exhibition coming up at the art gallery, anyone who finds themself in Byron from July 24th til August 13th should pop in for a lookski. It'll have a bunch of stuff from known and unknown creators.
Cool things are happening.

So I've been playing around with the digital side of things. I dig (... dig... digital... naaah!) this guy. Big, powerful, curious and maybe a little afraid of this tiny frail flower.
Its an old illustration concept I drew yeeeeaaaars ago that I thought might look cool like this.
I really like it.

Ok so not everyone gets that he's searching for his magicians bunny. I like this one because for about 3 years I would always see this kind of rock on the beach that I thought would work as a painting medium. So I crushed one up (years later) and made made this. Its made of just the rock crushed, water and pen for the line work. Going to do it again one day, in another 3years.
