COAT OF ARMS
So some months ago my husband suggested I turn my love of drawing Australian animals into something... 'like the Coat of Arms' he suggested, so these are the first sketches of what is turning out to be very fun. 

Prints available from May and T-shirts soon after, these are the stars and some of their friends... just a preview!
