BES Big Ecology draw-along, a new short story, and a Conservation Optimism micro-internship
I am one of the artists for the British Ecological Society (BES)'s Big Ecology draw-along, alongside Lauren Cook and Hana Ayoob, as part of the Edinburgh Science Festival 2021. We have pre-recorded draw-along videos, which will be presented by the wonderful Sophie Pavelle, who, alongside ecologists, will draw our species live, and chat about their ecology. Tickets are free, and the draw-along is taking place this Sunday on Zoom - you can get your tickets here.
My most recent short ecological fairytale, a nature creative writing piece, has been published on Bloom in Doom's website and is now available to read here. Originally, I created three small illustrations for this piece, but only one has been used on the website - so you can view all three pieces below. I really loved writing and illustrating Rooftops and Stargazers, and I hope you enjoy reading it!
A couple of weeks ago, I completed a micro-internship with Conservation Optimism, which involved creating a kids' poster for one of the Whitley Fund for Nature Award Winners 2021. This year, there were 7 Whitley Award Winners, and there will be 7 kids' posters in total, helping educate children about positive wildlife conservation! To accompany the posters, I have created 7 draw-along videos for each species that the Award Winners have focused on conserving, and these will be uploaded to my YouTube channel in a few weeks time.
Finally, if you like my work, and are financially able to do so, please consider buying me a coffee (hot chocolate!) through Ko-Fi - I really appreciate it, and you can receive some exclusive writing and art by subscribing to my newsletter!
