Monkeys are running riot in Thailand because the tourists aren't there to feed them, our isolation to deal with this virus is impacting on the wild animals and birds who have adapted to our presence, our generosity or mess.
Here the seagulls are going to be hungry, with no lunchtime litter from school kids now confined to home, or evening litter from evening revelers is missing to as pubs, restaurants and takeaways are closed.
I liked the gentle kindness of this food sharing illustration by Hiroko Kubota.

Love the loose mixed-media illustrations of Argentinian illustrator Maria José de Telleria, and I have chosen this torchlight selection to celebrate the beginning of summertime and the clocks changing this weekend.

So I was asked this week to put together some how-to videos for homeschooling and morale-boosting during these difficult times. I have made one video before as part of my MA, but it has been a couple of years. I have shared it via Instagram and my Facebook page and now I have popped it on Youtube. I will try to make one a day for the foreseeable future, and where I can use easily obtained materials.

This is an odd concertina book, it has a concertina of pages through which a concertina arm stretches through from the back. It has ended up being a documentation of what has touched me in the last few days and what I have touched. Seed potatoes are chitting, the bulbs and spring flowers are a balm for the eyes. Bird song has been a mind fixing melody of my early solitary morning walks and I have been removing litter.
