G’day! Christmas is just around the corner woohoo! Over the last few years I have had the pleasure of illustrating a Christmas card for the Scone Equine Hospital (NSW, Aus). It’s a ball of fun and I thought I’d share this year’s one:

SEH 2013 by F Darwin

The theme this year was not so much a theme but rather to base the illustration off a photo they’d sent. The photo depicted a couple of SEH vets nursing a newborn foal (with the aid of oxygen – which is apparently very necessary sometimes! Who knew?) while the mother horse looked on from the side. Hence the newborn reindeer being nursed by Santa and the presence of an oxygen tank in the picture. The elves are usually more naughty but this year they’re just pleased to meet the new little chap.

I will hopefully have more time to work on the Life of Pi pic now. However, I am moving in the next few weeks so that will take priority. Packing… it’s amazing what you collect over time.

No useful random find to share today but I can tell you what I’ve learned from moving within Sydney so far: need boxes? Don’t want to pay for them? Go to Coles man. Coles is great… or at least the one in Broadway Sydney has helped me heaps. The trick is to go in when they’re restocking the shelves – around 9:30pm to 10:30pm each evening. Then you just scour the isles looking for the empty boxes they’re piling up and ask if you can dig in. Everyone I asked was super happy for me to help myself. You get a nice variation of sizes (mostly smaller ones though – but that was what I was looking for anyway). I even had one of the unpacker chaps offer to unload a bigger box while I waited so I could take it. Cheers! It really can make your day when someone gives a bit of a damn 🙂 Oh! and always buy twice as much packaging tape… you’ll run out and it sucks when you’re on a packaging roll and then have to stop because of lack of tape >_<

Righto, enough of my random (probably entirely inconsequential) life trips. Off to pack more… stuff… ugh all my stuffffff.
