‘Tree hollows are animal homes’
#1 Design collection – Eucalypt Open Forests, south-eastern Australia
‘Tree hollows are animal homes’ is a series of designs inspired by the relationship between the many Australian animal species that use hollows and the trees that provide them. This first set of 5 designs includes illustrations of 19 animal species that use hollows in the Eucalypt Open Forests of south-eastern Australia.
‘Possums of Australia’ design collection
Yes I have a possum obsession!
Maybe you do too?
I decided to illustrate all 27 species of possum and glider that live in Australia. I’ve loved these critters for a long time, perhaps because most of them live in forests, and I also love forests.
As a result I now present you with 8 different possum / glider designs.

That’s me, in the orange bus. It’s the 1970’s, this bus is our family campervan, and we’re driving through wet sclerophyll forest north of Healesville, in Victoria.
Welcome to the first issue of A Cartoon Guide to Australian Ecology: Australian forests and where to find them (Part One).

A simple concertina book can be a great way to record your next holiday, road trip or nature journaling adventure.
I’ve also found that simple concertina books can unlock inspiration in kids and adults when a flat blank journal page may be too daunting or dull. Perhaps it’s the tactile nature of these books, the way that people tend to open and close them, and look at them from all angles, that stimulates different neural pathways in the brain.
A simple concertina book is essentially just a strip of robust paper (high GSM watercolour paper or mixed media paper works well) that is folded to form multiple small pages. But it feels like a little book, that unfolds alluringly, to tell a story….
