Drawing fish is a very unscientific activity for me. They sometimes start with a touch of fact but they go off into fantasy quite quickly.
I took the fish fantasy to great lengths when I tiled my shower with hand painted sea life tiles, made by my daughter Suzy Spoon. I was pretty sad to leave these tiles behind when I moved to the Central Coast, especially as Suzy has moved on in her artistic career, now working in film and TV.
So, speaking of the talented Suzy, may I put in a request that if any of my readers would like to help her with her non-profit business, here's how to go about it:
Suzy Spoon’s web program Iron Deficient Chef has been chosen as a finalist in the Voiceless People’s Choice Awards 2010. We need your vote to help Suzy win. Voting closes on 20 September.
Iron Deficient Chef, series two – SpoonCapers : a series of five-minute webisodes each containing a delicious vegan recipe and an important animal protection message.
After a successful series of six five-minute webisodes in 2008, SpoonCapers is ready to begin producing series two of the popular vegan cooking show, Iron Deficient Chef. Each episode deals with a different ethical issue associated with what we eat – from the growth of the factory farming industry to the commercial kangaroo slaughter, live export and pigs in sow stalls, as well as providing the viewer with a delicious vegan recipe. “Iron Deficient Chef makes viewers aware of important issues about animal cruelty, and is delivered in a non-confronting way to maximize its appeal and reach a new audience,” notes producer, writer and host Suzy Spoon.
