A photo of my aesthetically presentable marker library in Australia, I have a smaller array in the US. Arranged as close to rainbow gradient as possible and separated in snaplocks. My dad would be proud. Mostly #tombow #fabercastellpittpens and #zigscrollandbrush A few #marvyleplume and rarely used #Pantone plus some #elmerspainters that I used for outlines until recent switch to #copicmultiliner  (at Laughing Waters)

Jillaroo by the Loo (Ginny and Pearl), Warburton, 2009, fibre tip pens on Stonehenge cotton paper, 127 x 97cm. ‘Ginny, seen with her kelpie Pearl, plays a stockwoman character not far removed from one of her two impressions of Australian life before she emigrated from the UK. Incidentally, her other expectation was close to life on Ramsay Street in ‘Neighbours’.’ Drawn on Wurundjeri land as part of my Naked Landscapes of Victoria series. #nakedlandscapes #nakedlandscape #landscape #textaqueen #markers #drawing #landscapedrawing #portrait #jillaroo #aussie #stockwoman #kelpie #loo #ocker #aussie #corkhat #swagman #toolbelt #gumtrees #blundstones #axe #tragedy #inthebush #australianstereotype

Here’s the serenity or The Great Winnebago Adventure (Lou), Lake Eildon. ‘When the speedboats of Bonnie Doon were grounded due to drought, this classic Aussie housewife sought an alternate location to read her favourite books on Australian history and family genealogy. This eerily beautiful yet artificial lake, where dead trees poke above the murky waters like ash-grey totems, seemed an apt backdrop for questioning, as non-Indigenous Australians, where we come from and why we’re here.’ 2009, felt-tips on Stonehenge cotton paper, 97 × 127cm. Drawn on a cold and wildy day on Taungaurung land as part of Naked Landscapes of Victoria series.
