  • Spdical thanks to @alex.ander1286 for the gorgeous reference photo! 😄
The quokka's might be the tourism star of Rottnest Island, but that's not the only place you can find them - though it's certainly the place where they're the friendliest! Small populations of these little wallabies also exist on Bald Island, and scattered in the forest and coastal heath between Perth and Albany. Quokkas from these latter places won't come up to you begging for treats, though; they are shy animals which haven't been acclimatised to human interaction.

  • So happy to meet my first quokka on Rottnest Island. Such friendly little creatures. The SCBWI West peeps were just as friendly. Thanks @kelly_canby & team for a great #SCBWIrotto19 conference.

  • Interrupting your beer feed to introduce you to the world's happiest animal - the quokka! They're super curious, extremely friendly and will put a smile in your face. 😍⁣
⁣
You can find them on Rottnest Island, which is off the coast of Western Australia and just a short ferry trip away from my hometown Perth. 🛳⁣
⁣
Do you have a heart of stone? Would you rather look at beer? Then swipe across to the last pic for your fix. It's yet another bottle of @matsosbeer ginger beer from my time in Oz. I had this at @thomsons_rottnest while waiting for the ferry back to Perth, def a good choice in the Aussie heat!⁣

  • The quokka's big feet and hopping gait reflect its membership in the macropod family of marsupials, making it a relative of the iconic kangaroo. In fact, the quokka is itself a species of wallaby!

  • Last week was spent exploring Perth on the far side of Australia 🇦🇺. One of the highlights was spending the day hanging out with these guys on Rottnest Island. Meet the the friendly Quokka’s 😀

  • Fofo e exclusivo! Venha saber mais sobre os Quokkas, encontrados em apenas duas ilhas da Austrália.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Parece ou não parece ser o animal mais feliz do mundo? 😍
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⚠️ Apesar de ser amigável, inofensivo e não ter qualquer receio em andar pelo meio das pessoas, o quokka não deve ser mexido, pegado nem alimentado. É um animal com estatuto de conservação vulnerável, segundo a IUCN e não existem mais do que 14 mil indivíduos na natureza, 12 mil dos quais em Rottnest.

  • The hard Polychromos are great for detail, but they are also extremely responsive to the weight of your hand. With a light touch, you can lay down colour that is just barely visible. The soft Luminance, on the other hand, tend to put down much more saturated layers with the same weight-of-hand. So if I want something definitely dark - like the guard hairs on this quokka's coat - it's more efficient for me to use the Luminance than the Polychromos, provided the colour is right.

  • Hello! Yes, it’s me again. I’ve been so slack with social media these past few months... on one hand I feel guilty that I’m not updating what’s happening, and on the other hand it’s been quite freeing not caring about numbers/stats/planning photos/freaking bots. 😄 
I’ve been very busy designing my new brooches: sulphur-crested cockatoos and a family of quokkas, as well as catching up on all the orders from when I was away in Japan. Nearly all caught up now, which is certainly nice. 😊 
I looked at the statistics on my website last night and freaked out a little because so many people are visiting it now!! I need to keep it up to scratch. 🤭 And right on time, my computer has died. Don’t worry, I’ve got my live-in tech looking at it. Fingers crossed it won’t be too expensive. 🤞
I hope your June is coming along well. 😊
