The New Zealand Book Council has created an amazing stop-motion video to promote reading. It is really amazing and I would recommend you take a look.

The making of another world, part 3

I've been putting in even more details - plants, animals, birds, insects... Everything is native to this area.

I've asked the kids to pick out a butterfly for me to paint - I hope they like my renderings. They are my critics, pointing out any problems (not many, as of yet!), making suggestions, and generally being an inspiration. I'll have more pictures of the details, as well as the overall mural soon.

The making of another world, part 2

After a month or so and some work, I can post update photos of the mural.

The original pics can be seen here.
