Tuxedo/ Platypus Drawings

Begun in May 2019, an ongoing series of digital drawings developed from the Belfast-Type Pictures project.

Tuxedo: perhaps derived from a Native American word, p’tuck-sepo, “crooked river”; also named after Tuxedo Park, in Orange County, New York.

Platypus: the first Europeans to examine a platypus in 1797 thought it a fake animal, made of several parts sewn together.
