Hi Mark.
The dentist that killed cecil the lion lived within 30 miles of me when i was going to college in college. It looks like he is feeling remorseful for his actions. Which just happened after the bad publicity tidal wave crashed down on him.  I just hope some good comes out of this, but more likely than not people will forget about it within 2 weeks.

Always nice to hear from you --

I suspect he's remorseful because he suddenly found out that posting pics of dead animals on FB is probably not the best idea. In fairness to him, he was part of a group of people and ALL of them should be charged - not only the dentist. That said, he's an experienced hunter and he would have seen that they were baiting the lion out of the park. He also opted to shoot and badly wound it with a bow and arrow which resulted in the injured cat only being found 40 hours later (its reported) and killed with a rifle. ALL of the above point directly back at the hunter so I don't buy his remorse for a second - after all, he's been charged and found guilty of questionable hunting practices in the US before.

Unfortunately this becomes deeply personal for me because - as you might have read on my FB feed - my sister spent the whole of yesterday forced to deal with an adult  female Rhino that was slaughtered on her game farm and to make matters worse, the Rhino was pregnant so they lost two in a single senseless blow. 

Can good come out of this?? I don't know but sadly I do have to agree with you that in two weeks people will probably forget..

Cheers again. I hope you're exceedingly well!

I love the personal feeling your art invokes, like the classic movie posters.

Will you be attending Perth supernova 2015?

Thanks Will. Yes I will be in Perth and in Sydney. I'm giving an art Masterclass in both venues as well as being at my table during the day.
