The Cow that Swam out to Sea

  
The Cow that Swam out to Sea has launched! I was thrilled to illustrate Pamela Rushby’s story. The Qld State Library and the First 5 Forever program have published 12 books, created by Qld authors and illustrators. The series is titled: Stories for Little Queenslanders and will be available at all Qld libraries and Indigenious knowledge centre. Based on a true story of a cow’s journey after being washed down the Brisbane River during the floods. This is a book about finding courage and being brave.

Drawing from a range of historical and popular literary references, the exhibition investigates zoonotic diseases – illnesses carried by animals that can be transferred to humans. Lithography and drawing are used as a method to create immersive experiences through which visitors can explore their relationships with these creatures and the world around them. Zoonoses offers a creative perspective on fear, disease and animals through fairytale iconography, rhymes, artist books, sculpture and wallpaper.

New works include Run Rattus Rattus Run (above) animation by Dr Zeynep Akcay, Griffith Film School, lithographs by myself and Concerning Cats and Toxoplasmosis works inspired by Lady Francesca Wilde’s Irish Myths. Zoonoses runs concurrently with Lynley Dodd’s Scarface Claw Exhibition.
