jess's picks - week 7: FARM

Farms hold a special place in a lot of our outback hearts, and this week inspired me to get out of the city soon! The landscapes, animals and characters through such an array of illustration techniques - scraperboard, watercolours, digital and many more - provided a great spectrum of farm images. Thank you '52 artists for the visual smorgasbord! (On a side note, I kept thinking of the book Animal Farm - "four legs good... two legs bad..." but in this case, the two legged chickens were fantastically good!).
