Week 3: Australiana*

Because of the new picture book challenge, I have stories on my mind, and with Australia and stories, I can only think of Dreamtime stories.
So, not my own story this week, but a Kenning poem to go with my illustration.

Dreamtime being
Earth shaper
Mountain maker
Creek Carver
Frog tickler
Billabong filler
Waterhole dweller
Child eater?
Most powerful
Rainbow Serpent

And, as a sort of nod to Jasper Johns, here's a semi-abstract map of Australia. A rough and ready quickie on photoshop. The research and planning of ideas took longer than the actual creating bit.*
I couldn't resist one more illustration this week. One of my doodle characters, dressed up as a koala.
