has various Celtic patterns: knots, spirals & swirls, knotted animals, always with very vivid colours, mostly yellow & red.
You can imagine the eagle and the lion will be continued in a next batch with the calf and the man to complete the collection of the Four Evangelists... :aww:

I mostly draw adult coloring pages, but I also create images to sell on products in my Etsy Store. I love Celtic Knots, Paisleys and Tangles along with Australian flora and fauna, but my next Coloring Book will be about Bazza the Bastard Cat.

I have published a number of Adult Coloring Books, calendars and diaries which are available for purchase on my website (coil bound with thick pages) or paperbacks on Amazon: www.amazon.com/Mrs-Lorraine-T-…

McCann was lucky not to be lynched
One of the most serious crimes of the early WA Goldfield days was to start a bogus gold rush.  I have redone my earlier illustration so it is in the same ink style as my previous cyclilng illustration.  Will be published in my upcoming book written by Nanna - "Colourful Tales of the WA Goldfields"  goldfieldstories.com

Cycling in the West

Illustration created for a book to be revised, illustrated and published by myself: "Colourful Tales of the Western Australian Goldfields" - by Norma King

In the early goldfields days, cyclists would travel between mines and mining towns in Western Australia to deliver letters and other items for a fee. In the summer heat with little water, it was a dangerous way to make a living.

Below is a poem published in "Cycling News" 1899:

The specials ride for a bob a mile
And they earn it every bean
They cover the shadeless plains in style
That would may you East men green

For if ever a man deserved his pay
It’s the cyclist who can pass
A hundred miles in a ten-hour day
On a cover stuffed with grass …

There’s none of your billiard-table tracks
To the soaks, where the specials train.
There’s the glint of the dread ‘three-cornered jacks’
And the thick red dusty plain.

There’s the ‘double-jees’ on the iron-stone rise.
There’s the stump and the hidden hole
Where the shriek of the puncture signifies
The song of the cyclist’s soul.

They carry their lives in their midget kits,
Who pace on the golden trails,
And they grovel down in their hand-scraped pits
When the willy-willy wails.

With the midget lost and the tyre cut through
And the waterbag run dry,
The special turns to the East he knew
And spreads the sand to die.
