2 of our national parks have created a series of 6 mugs with my illustrations (Avocet, Great Bustard, Meadow Viper, Spoonbill, Saker and Collared Pratincole):

These can be bought at their directorates.

I'm still working on the book about mimicry. I've just completed a scene with a small Namibian boy admiring at some flowering Stone Plants (Lithops marmorata).

I really enjoyed mixing the many different shades of his skin.

I'm working on illustrations for a nature trail commissioned by a national park. This is a quite varied subject, the most interesting one is this portait of our famous writer from the XIX. century, Géza Gárdonyi. His most famous novel is about the protection of an important fort from the attacks of the Turkish army in the in the XVI. century (Egri csillagok).

A less known fact about Gárdonyi that he was a keen naturalist. He kept the natural scineces above all others.
