Thanks to COVID I actually found the time to get back into a few new Yuendumu studies. This time they are in colour and a fair bit bigger than the previous black and white ones. So the format is A1 now. The technique remeins the same - acylics and coloured pencil.

The Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Women's Council asked me to illustrate a book written by elders from the NPY-Lands. It is a story about the collective traum and an example of how things can come good after all. This was an awesome job and working with NPY-Women's Council was a treat. The book is available at their shop: https://www.npywc.org.au/shop/

It was a pleasure to paint more animal designs for Yuedumu School doors. Since one of the doors I painted the year before was already wrecked by the kids, the school decided to have me painting my motives on door sized metal plates instead, so that they can be srewed onto the doors and easlily be transfered if necessary.

The painting of the Yuendumu School doors by local elders in 1984 is considered a mile stone in the rise of the desert art movement. Since the famous originals are now on display in the South Australian Museum and no longer available to be covered with graffiti, the Yuendumu school hired me to paint local animals on the class room doors. Eagle and Perentie were the first two designs. More to come next year.

On the occasion of the publication of "O Rio Salgado" I had the pleasure to be invited to the Amadora BD festival in the outskirts of Lisbon. It's really on the edge of nowhere.
The festival staff was awesome. They set up a very nice exhibition and I had to sign a lot of books and met intersting artists.
All in all I had an awesome time on my first trip to Portugal.
Thank you Amadora BD!
