John Kelly's Daily Antarctic Blog (Part 2)

Bookend is offering school students the opportunity of an Antarctic or Southern Ocean Experience by responding to John Kelly's blog below.

Each day or so (communications permitting!), John will send through a short description of his experiences in Antarctica, from the logistics of working there to the artistic challenges of creating his art. These short updates may be brief, or they may be detailed, and they will be interspersed with longer blogs that John prepares for the broader media. His most recent comments are at the top.



THE STORY SO FAR (continued)...

25 December 2013: Merry Christmas all! As the last blog images, here is John's Wombat RSL studio retreat at Mawson - a place to work when weather wouldn't let him outside. Oh, and a very cute penguin. Aside from this, it's now over to you at home. The blogs have ended. Submit your artworks as per the competition rules & deadline, and WIN your own adventure!



24 December 2013: Dead Snow Petrel.
