4:00pm Thursday, 20 Dec.

The plumage in John Pusateri's bird illustrations may look a little like they've been dipped into a craft box, but why shouldn't the more humble species be treated as birds of paradise?

There are some seriously under-loved animals in the art world. Take the sea otter for an example: possibly one of the most profound, utterly adorable creatures but they're often overshadowed by things that swim with a little more grace, like those god-dammned dolphins.

It's the start of a fresh week, so what better time for a new online frankie feature? Postcards will be like a monthly photography essay that features a different spiffy international maker/doer/crafter/thinker and the town they live in.

There are some things in the world you can never have too many of: fresh flowers, grapes, and spare pairs of stockings to name a few. Illustrations of cute critters doing normal human things are definitely on this list.
