Another two pieces completed today:

A Chinese Fisherman for my "portraits" page. I felt the urge to draw someone old and wrinkly and remembered this segment from "Wild China" where comorants were used to assist in fishing. They have rings around their neck so they cannot swallow their catches.

Roadrunner and Coyote - semi realistic. For DADAlogy

Now for some brainstorming - to complete my book I need:

1-2 x portraits
1x crypto critters (for HmmNbird?)
1x landscapes (Hawaii for landscapes swap)
2x folklore - whimsical mermaid and ???
2-3 x fantasy novels - "13 1/2 lives of Captain Bluebear", maybe "Perdido Street Station" or "Mortal Engines" (Steampunk for DADAlogy??), and ??? Need to think of a GREAT fantasy novel.
1 x literary fiction - "Oryx and Crake"
1 x Emotionally Weird (personified emotions) - "purple" for PAT? Purple = wisdom, grief?
1 x Cultural Cats (The Cat from .... *insert country here*) - not really necessary, but would be nice
1 x New Zealand wildlife (non urgent as can find something in archives if necessary)

Suggestions and requests for the above graciously accepted!

Need to draw:
June PAT - Hippo, Mermaid (See above), potted plant, cute male gnome
May PAT - purple (see above), CATS, Hot Air Balloon
Summer PAT- insect, dragons, Bast, weird sea creatures and skeletons, Icecat, Muppets, Siren, Crows/insect
Also, two cards for Artree.
