ode to a lizard

This week I visited the zoology department at the Australian National University and spent an afternoon drawing in their museum, which is like a library except the shelfs are filled with a huge assortment of jars. It was a bit of an overwhelming experience  - quite amazing and haunting at the same time.

Hi everyone, I hope all is well :) Recently I have been playing with sandblasting on layers of plexiglass and glass petri dishes, which can create subtle lines that cast interesting shadows. I am still developing a hanging system for this piece - at the moment it is sitting on a table, but I would like to display it on the wall. The blocks of wood will be replaced with clear plexiglass before then!
