Afrikaans Music Video
I'd like to share this music video with y'all!  Kaylyn Botha is the daughter of Adri, the owner of the local art gallery that sells and promotes my work.  Kaylyn stiill has a few years of school ahead of her, but has enough talent to get a proper career in music going.  This song is very light and poppy; it's her first Afrikaans song, she mostly sings in English.

My book is a reality!
Here it is, my book!  This photo was taken 'in the wild' on a bird-watching trip and there were hippos nearby!  This book has 42 of my articles published on the h2g2.com site, and of course lots of paintings and also many monochrome drawings.  Lots of information, interesting little facts that few people would know, and it is easy to read.  If you'd like to get this book, you can order it here: http://www.lulu.com/shop/willem-van-der-merwe/colours-of-wildlife/paperback/product-24029708.html and here: http://www.lulu.com/shop/willem-van-der-merwe/colours-of-wildlife/hardcover/product-23953329.html
