After last night’s very rushed job (literally posted with 2 minutes of the day left…) which really didn’t look at all like what I had in my head but had to go with it anyway I decided to focus on trying to get some emotion through in my character’s faces.
In 1788, the British First Fleet sailed into Botany Bay to establish a penal colony. Finding Botany Bay unsuitable, they sailed 12km north to Sydney Cove, pitched a few tents there… and BLAMMO! Australia was born.
Today, people celebrate Australia Day/Hottest 100 Day/Invasion Day… call it what you like, I’ll still be eating burnt sausages and drinking beer. Though I tried not to be political, I at least made it tongue-in-cheek… sorta.
This drawing took 20 minutes and was done on January 26th, 2011.
