Wow, how time flies! (probably not the first time I say this)
I had collected these images thinking of posting them last winter,
but here I am, and the Year of the Dragon is already reaching its end...
Hsueh Shao-Tang, 1971
I take this opportunity to thank all the readers who have followed, commented
and e-mailed; I am very grateful for your compliments, encouragement and suggestions!
And a special thanks goes to all the artists, publishers, authors and illustrators
who have generously and graciously contributed to this blog in so many different ways.
I have to ask all of you who have contacted me recently, and have been waiting for a reply,
to kindly be patient. The last three months have seen an unusually abundant outpouring
of freelance graphic design work on top of my regular 18 weekly hours of teaching.
I sometimes I wonder if my head is going to explode, but I am also quite happy
because, let's face it, I enjoy being busy. And I promise I'll find the time
to keep the Animalarium as full of life and surprises as ever!
