    Hissy, the Koala was one of the fortunate creatures rescued from the huge bush fires - which are an annual event in Victoria Australia.  Her front paw was badly burned, however she managed to get around well, and this image - she was backing down the tree whilst holding her paw.  She was in the safe hands of the Healesville Sanctuary.

    I photographed and sketched her on site and completed this image in my studio. 

    Scratchboard and Ampersand Ink for colour.  Original sketches and photographs by Jan.
