Just came back from my long-anticipated trip to Syros, Greece. What a lovely island! And the farmhouse I stayed at was hosted by the kindest people, Alexia and Lefteris who have 6-year-old boy named Hermes. Hermes reminds me of Gerald Durrell - a born naturalist. He showed me all kinds of geckos and other interesting creatures that he gently caught and released. While I was there I intended to do watercolors but I quickly tired of doing mediocre landscapes and started drawing crazy creatures. The result is the video story above. Below are pictures of the Cycladic Museum in Athens, the farmhouse on Syros, and my trip.
