I like eating carbonara. It tastes alright, but the real kick comes from the knowledge that kosher followers, coeliacs, paleo-dieters, Atkins dieters, vegetarians, vegans, and lactose intolerants can’t have any.
Fun fact: Malagasy people believe that chameleons are an omen of death. If they look at you it’s the worst of all luck.
The Kimberley coastline in WA is at risk. Gas companies are proposing to place a gas hub at James Price Point. In the heart of sacred aboriginal land, on top of one of the most important palaeontologic sites in Australia. They want to dot the area with oil rigs, in the middle of a known humpback whale breeding ground.

I thought Australia had stopped taking land from traditional owners, but this new government has decided keep going.
"The West Australian Government has finalised its acquisition of controversial gas hub land to supply projects in the Kimberley region."
They say it’ll just be a marina now, but guess where the rocks will come from!
Always draw the branch first, or the monkey/lizard/bird/possum will be clinging on to something that’ll be really hard to put in later.
The word describes the deep blue colour you get from grinding up lapis lazuli. Ages ago it got its name because when European painters needed blue paint, the pigment was shipped from far away overseas. The name literally means “ultra” beyond, “marine” seas. Beyond the seas.
Some of the fish you can find in my coral reef drawings.

Some people memorise all the Marvel and DC characters and story-lines and extra parallel universe happenings. Some people are able to recite whole Monty Python movies from memory. I’ve known 4 year olds who happen to know the names of every single train and grey-faced machine in the Thomas the Tank Engine series. But oh no - when I memorise the names, and species of fish, and where they come from, and the lifespans, and ages of the creatures at the aquarium I’ve taken things TOO FAR!
This is Pisac.
See those “little” steps?
Each of them are roughly 2 meters tall. They stretch all the way from the river bank up to the peak of the mountain. Sheltered and sunny at the bottom, colder and windier up the top. With so many different conditions in just one farm, it’s no wonder that throughout the Incan Empire people cultivated hundreds of different varieties of corn. Throughout my time in Peru I learnt Peruvians are very proud of their ancestors. Different people boast the Incans produced 55 types? 75 types? 200 types, 1000 types! (maybe an exaggeration?) Even with the help of Google, and Wiki Answers I’m having a hard time finding the precise number.
