Another card. For a very good teacher who has been driven crazy by a neighbour’s rooster all year. But this one is singing her praises.

    Hi Judy! I couldn’t find an email address for you (apologies if it is in plain sight!) I just wanted to say thank you for taking part in the puppet challenge over on the Artlog. After checking out your work I was hoping that you would!! – lovely stuff! :-) I particularly like your sketches made inside ‘real’ books, inspired! (and doing the little ‘erasure’ type quotes with thw text too!) have you always worked like that?
    Anyway hope you enjoy the forthcoming posts and looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

      Hi Peter. Thanks! I found your email on your beautiful site yesterday to contact you but ran out of time. (Crazy time of year and I am in the middle of a book project too.) I’m really looking forward to launching into the puppets. Your post about local folk tales has already given me a starting point. Although I would not touch aboriginal Australian myth, having no ownership or knowledge, there is a famed and well loved western Victorian author Alan Marshall who wrote an Australian fairy tale (in 1969 I think) called ‘Whispering in the Wind’. It features a Bunyip in place of a dragon, a witch, a giant, a hero and princess of course, a magical kangaroo and many others.

      Regarding the altered book art, it is relatively new to me as an activity, although I have long admired it, and being such a book freak, it was a natural direction to take eventually. But it’s just one area of interest for me, and I find it relaxing and fun – a good source of relief from work pressure.

      I’ll be in touch shortly with my contact details. Cheers!
