Last summer while Mac and I were traveling across Australia, he became obsessed with spotting a platypus. They are, as we found out, rare to see in the wild. Yet searched we did. None were spotted so for Mac's birthday I decided to block print him a platypus.
Here is my sketch for the block:
I was inspired by Aboriginal art work similar to Clifford Possum.
I used this image as a starting point:
Mac's Blue Platypus:
I made the block from cardboard and sponge I had around. I like how it came out. Fabric paint, pencil, colored pen.
Oh! I made a carrot cake too! Yummie! Happy Birthday Mac!
