I wanted to take a break from pencil and try a different type of illustration. Using a lot of scrap paper and glue on canvas, I made a collage of the galapagos tortoise. The layering of paper and the ink painted over it makes the tortoise look aged. It was hard avoiding picking up the markers I always use to draw in extra detail but I left it the so torn edges of paper can be seen.
Galapagos is now hanging at Artspace Espresso in the West End for a fortnight alongside the work of some great local Brisbane artists.
