My sister won a free safari in South Africa last year and v. kindly invited me along (it's a long story)It was booked for this September. Here are some sketches of the great hotel we stayed in. The bottom picture is the view from the pool.I have never, ever stayed anywhere this good before.
We negotiated with the holiday firm and they agreed to let us stay an extra week so we could go to Capetown, a trip we paid for ourself.

After we'd gotten settled in the hotel, we went out in the truck to spot some animals.

Africaaaaa photo break

My sister took some pretty sweet pictures (the bottom one is shark cage diving, in Capetown. I had to put it in even though it gives the sharks a raw deal. It took the whole of one three hour trip to get a single picture of a shark with it's mouth open)

More safari....aand on to Capetown, where I didn't do much drawing (too busy) The penguins were in the aquarium , though we did see wild ones.
Back to work now *moan*

I was pretty happy with these illustrations- untill the editor got back to me explaining that he wanted the man on the gurney being defibrillated, not the woman on the operating table.

In Africa for the next two weeks, wooo:)

but first, have some pics of the UEA campus. I have decided I like it so much because it reminds me of zombie shootin' computer games.
