More wet weather this week. This drawing was started last month. On a busy corner in New Plymouth, there's a cafe that looks out into the intersection. Since it's winter, it's still dark before work and the wet roads have lots of reflected light. I get a drink and sketch for about 15 minutes at a time. Now that it's August, I've noticed that I've filled up half a coffee card.

Tuatara means 'peaks on the back', It's ancestors are 200 million years old. They can grow up to 80cm in length. They have a pronounced photoreceptive eye - the so-called third eye.
It is unique in having two sets of upper teeth which overlap one set of lower teeth. They are able to hear but have no external ear. They typically live 60 years but can be well over 100.

I also liked how one of the bikes had Turbo written in reverse on the front... as if someone has good enough eyesight to look in their rear-view mirror and can read that while driving.
