This watercolour I did in 2015, unknowingly, kicked off Toby Turtle & the Underwater Crew.
To kick off my first journal post I thought I would share some news. This has been a great week, I had my very first radio interview about Toby Turtle & the Underwater Crew on local Sydney radio station 2RRR. On top of that, I have been invited to exhibit in the RAW Artists exhibition in Sydney on 9th August, so its been a very exciting week.
Toby Turtle and the Underwater Crew was a labour of love for me taking 1 and a half years to create and has a message about the effects of plastic rubbish on our marine life, one of the biggest environmental issues of our time. I have written the story with a sense of playfulness that is suitable for young children so they can connect with the characters and see marine life in hopefully, a different way.
