One of the great advantages of being a wildlife artist is having the opportunity to travel to some unbelievably fantastic places in order to get the appropriate reference materialfor my work.

During the course of my career, I have visited many countries such as..
India, to study the Tigers of Ranthambhore.
Chitwan National Park in Nepal.
Taman Negara, Rainforest in Malaysia.
Sepilok Orangutan reserve in Borneo.
Masai Mara, Serenghetti, Tsavo east and west, Kenya and Tanzania.
Ethiopia, Festival of life, Arba Minch.
North America, Teton Mountains, Yellowstone.
Central America, Monteverde Cloud forest, Corcovado National Park, Costa Rica.
South America, Peru, Ashaninka Rainforest Indians.
China, Guilin, Yangshao, Mount Hua reserve.
Possibly one of the most memorable was my visit to Rwanda in March 2000 to see the fabulous mountain Gorillas. “The country was still very unsafe after the civil war and genocide,
I was being chaperoned by the wildlife organisation Fauna and Flora International. Travellers wishing to see the Gorillas are escorted by armed guards through the impenetrable jungle. Despite the hardship of the terrain etc, I had a fantastic time and was rewarded with incredible encounters with the Gorillas, (especially the one that nearly took my head off, but that’s another story)

  1. The more I read Ben's explanations the more stupid I feel for having bought into the SIAI's donation hungry rhetoric and fearmongering. What it boils down to is the SIAI saying they refuse to explain their arguments fully but all research should stop while they define words like friendliness and humanity, then Ben saying all he wants to do is start off with an AI toddler under controlled circumstances and learn/go from there. If only I had a few million dollars for Ben/humanity.

  2. Hi Chris -I think spiders are kinda weird yet kinda cool at the sometime. If they keep their distance they can stay alive, if they jump me, they are more than likely dead. If they are just crawling around in my house I will try and escort them outdoors, yet once again if they resist they may not make it. I love bees, frogs, and monkeys!

  3. 26.12.2012 at 22:20The Absent Game…Involving me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 gamers over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (basic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of gamers….

  4. Hornet disse:Francoorp,eu sei disso. E o Rafale neste quesito está bem colocado também. O SH está na frente em termos de produção, mas até o final de linha do Rafale ainda teremos muitos sendo produzidos. A diferença está entre um caça que já opera na US NAVY e um caça que está entrando em operação na França. Até o final de sua produção, o Rafale substituirá todos os caças franceses…o que não é pouco.Sem falar na produção para outros países.abração

  5. AKU BINGUNG, ADA NYATA, KADANG2 ADA JUGA YANG BILANG MAKHLUK TIDAK KELIHATAN (GHAIB/WHATEVER) ITU ADA LIKE US THE PEOPLE CALL THEM SETAN / WHATEVER, GIMANA INI YA, BAGAIMANA KALAU KITA TELITI DAN SELIDIKI KHUSUS BAHKAN HARUS DENGAN SISTEM LINTAS SEKTORAL/ ALL SECTOR DENGAN RAPI DAN DAMAI (BE REAL CAREFULL)maaf setulus2nya bagi pihak manapun, saya hanya benda hidup yang berfikir dan bingung, gelisah, was2, sekali lagi saya benar2 minta maaf

  6. , I’m torn between the Garmin 210 and the Nike+ Sportwatch. I’m just an average runner about to start training for the Marine Corps Marathon and I’m ready pick up a good watch to begin training. So which one do you recommend? Any key features that one has over the other? Are there any GPS watches coming out in the near future that I should wait for? Thanks for your help and for you amazing product reviews.Thanks,Nick

  7. that’s fine, and at the hospital I’ll be delivering at, I’d have to sign a release for her to get any shots anyway. I already plan to keep our baby with us at all times anyway, unless an emergency arises. Also, we know our pediatrician will grudgingly allow us not to vaccinate. My husband can debate with the best of them, so I feel confident there. Thanks again for the info!

  8. nous un sur dix des nouveaux adhérents étaient là, et pour un certain nombre seul contait le désir de rejoindre le parti et la gauche, sans idées beaucoup plus arrêtée. Et comme il y avait le match au bout de la cérémonie de présentation, d’un point sur la lutte municipale par une conseillère candidate à l’investiture, un petit débat et deux autres contributions tout le monde a filé sans demander son reste

  9. Jajajjajajajjaa, que wenna !!!!, los democrata cretinos, me hacen reir mucho : Primero votaron por el Borrachin Allende en el congreso para elegirlo presidente, despues golpearon las puertas de los cuarteles para derrocarlo, luego anduvieron por toda europa pidiendo ayuda para echar a los milicos, ajjajajajajjaja. Democrata Cretinos, deberían estar encerrados en sus ratoneras, calladitos .

  10. J’ai du taf devant moi, je reviendrai donc sur vos commentaires un peu plus tard. Juste un point, Thierry : au vu du positionnement prix des livres de , , , et même , je ne pense pas que celui de JCF soit spécialement anti-social. Je comprends la frustration qu’il y a à ne pas pouvoir lire le livre pour le commenter mais moi, ce qui m’étonne, c’est que tu partes de façon assez véhémente dans une critique de ce qui n’y figure pourtant pas.

  11. We’re very luck to have several really great DJs here in the Phoenix area. One of my favorites (if not in fact my favorite) is Curtis Whipple. What a show he puts on for his audience. It’s awesome fun when at a party and Curtis is the DJ!!

  12. We have a huge field and we empty our vegetable peelings, eggshells, tea bags, and tissue paper soft. I then add a little above normal soil and repeat from time to time. Each year we have the richest soil, digging in our garden and my plants look beautiful. Cheap and easy

  13. The intro was a little long. But other than that is was a really neat piece. It was cool to hear a lot of sounds come together and interesting to hear the changes. I really did like the sounds in the intro, that was really super cool. Shows a lot of work, having seemingly random sounds come together like that!

  14. I do agree with some of the comments about the bookcase making you look a bit shorter – but I am really short and tend to assume everyone is taller than me. I am actually surprised to find out that a lot of the bloggers I follow are short too. Well, not you obviously.

  15. I don’t think that majority of America approves of shockingly immoral entertainers. They tolerate them until the curiosity of the newness wears off but it never lasts long. The PC crowd has led us all into hell where we have to tolerate the likes of Howard Stern, Perez Hilton, Lady Gaga and now Adam Lambert. All of which the majority dislike and those who are going through periods of rebellion will soon grow out of liking. He’s a disgusting passing phase but passing, nevertheless…thank God.

  16. This style is steller! You most surely know how to maintain a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own weblog (effectively, almost…HaHa!)

  17. it had it Karma. The person who gave it to her, wore it for her wedding and they were the happiest couple and her and her husband are the same!!! It is SO important to remain friends and always take time for yourself to keep things alive, fresh and exciting! Look good, feel good, transpires into your relationships!! Meet you at the top… it isn’t far! xo
