Work on Adelaide Road

This is the first art I've made since I've been in NZ. Hell, it's the first work I've done in a month - my supplies have been packed for weeks. Still are. They're sitting in a big blue bin in the wood workshop of Massey. The University has a really great library. I found a fantastic book called The Dodo and Mauritus Island: Imaginary Encounters by Harri Kallio. It has some delightful images of dodo skeletons and such, very inspiring. I just happened to put a sketchbood, a few pencils, and one lone charcoal pencil in my luggage which I used on the above pieces. I also used eyeshadow on the top piece and coffee on the bottom one. Hey, gotta make due. Making due has played a major role in my life for the past two weeks.


  1. Are you sure it was coffee and not "coffee powder"? It would appear, actually it definitely is that you're doing extremely well with "making due". I can't wait to see what amazing creations you put togtether when you're 100% up and running! You're doing great babe!!


  2. More like makin' dodo...
