Hi Nicole,

There is a program in Australia headed by Anne Llewellyn.  Talk about a
continent to apply that geology degree. Don't know if they have gotten
around to offering a graduate degree program but Anne is a very
determined lady, so I would certainly check it out. And the US dollar
stretches farther there.

Dear all,
Just to let you know that the University of Newcastle, Australia now offers
a three year undergraduate Bachelor of Illustration (Natural History) and a
separate one year Bachelor of Illustration (Natural History) Honours

The honours program is available to meritorious students from undergraduate
programs such as science, design, fine art and illustration.  This program
attracts students from many countries as well as all states of Australia.

On another matter, it appears that art suppliers have stopped importing some
materials into Australia and I would like to know of any suppliers in the US
or UK who could supply white scraper (scratch) board and coquille board or
paper.  If any of you have any suggestions, I would appreciate contact
Cheers and thanks,
