More Stuffage.





The ink leaking through from the fourth piece to the third piece is the reason I hate moleskins. The second one down is a bad self portrait print (drypoint on plexiglas) and the colored squares are acrylic on bristol. That is Les Stroud in the fur hood.

excellent, Ammon! I'm not sure who Les Stroud is but I like the way his snow goggles work in that portrait.

Thanks Ian.

Les Stroud is the guy that is Survivorman here on the American version of the Discovery Channel. He basically goes all over the world and spends a week in the wild by himself in a self administered survival situation. I love that show.

Great stuff Ammon! Some of your best yet. Yes, Survivorman is very interesting, probably even better than the other similar program, whose name slips my memory.

ah ha! there's a spate of those here in the UK. We have Ray Mears and Bear Grylls, they even fight to see who's the toughest survivor! Not face to face, of course, but in the press; apparently, Mears accused Bear of heading for a four star hotel once the day's filming had ended... Mears, by the look of his girth, seems like he doesn't often go without. He's either very successful at surviving on berries or stays in the hotel next to Grylls'.

These are GREAT~!

I love Les Stroud. I mean, your picture of him.

And the guy next to him with all the colors.

What fun!

Beautiful stuff. And I hate moleskins for the same reason...
