Prepping for Africa

It's that time again. The time where we get excited and try to prep as best we can to head out in the wilds of the motherland. Africa. We are very proud and fortunate to have teamed up with the Aware Trust and its founders, DVM Dr Keith Dutlow and Dr Lisa Marabini.

The Expedition Art team has been working hard trying to raise some funds and raise awareness to the attention of the oldest land mammal on the planet the rhino.

We will be sharing thru the blog as best we can from the field. We are all students of life as well as teachers. Africa and its natural wonders have much to offer and teach. We go there as students and come back with amazing experiences and hopefully some solutions or an option, on how we can continue to share the planet without jeopardizing any resources shamelessly.

I thought I would share some prepping photos and my art equipment. It's never easy and I try to use past trips to prep for the next and hopefully not forget anything.

Being in the African bush is an amazing experience. Especially from an artist point of view. The animals and landscapes are something to experience and a pleasure for the soul.

 We will try to post as much as we can while in the field but Internet availability isn't very common. We would like to thank all of the people that have supported our cause and helped with local fundraisers. We would like to thank our big supporter and friend Brian Rodgers without him none of this would be possible.
