Thylacine

Ballpoint pen sketch (Kilometrico) on unlined Paperblanks stock.

Mostly in honour of the serious scientific expedition to look for a Northern Queensland population after discussions with credible witnesses. Here's hoping James Cook University yields something awesome. (They themselves say positive results are slim to 'stretching the bounds of the imagination' but it'll be the kind of expedition that will yield results on other animals too, which is a good thing.

Beautiful work. Would ideally love to see a live specimen of a Thylacine if possible :-)

I imagine a lot of people would, that's why there's millions of dollars of rewards for them. I, sadly, believe they're fully extinct.

I am tickled t hear about the expedition; especially since the first thing that came to mind when I saw this was William Dafoe's "The Hunter". This image is right in line with "The Goddess", and an animals who I really find such a great deal of interest for me. You have made such a great tribute and such an elegant one. :love:

Even if they are, science will bring them back someday.

Yes, all they need is some of their DNA.

I think they're currently sequencing their genome.
