Asian Geographic Junior Issue 04/2018 (50)
In this issue of Asian Geographic Junior, we have prepared two special feature stories for you. The first is “25 Astonishing Asians”, where we look at the achievements of 25 amazing people from around Asia. You may recognise, and feel inspired by, several of them!
The second story is “Drawing Attention”. This feature has been carefully planned to show you how ar tists create their art. Many, of course, do their painting in their studio, using a paintbrush and colours. Some ar tists enjoy going outdoors to sketch. Yet others draw using their mobile tablet or a digital pen. Perhaps you will feel encouraged to take up a pencil or a watercolour brush too!
Dipping below the surface we enter a trippy, zero-gravity state beyond even Lewis Carroll’s wildest imagination. SDAA now brings you some of the most incredible, fantastical underwater seascapes, topography that defies logic, and the creatures that seem to have emerged from a fairy-tale land.
From mysterious mangroves, dramatic ravines, canyons and caves, fields of insanely colourful coral, and reef formations that seem to defy common sense.
We take you up close and personal to the beasts behind the myths (the dugongs and walruses), to trippy critters that even the Cheshire cat couldn’t have predicted (neon nudibranchs, of course!). Meet the real Moby Dick (Migaloo), and explore seascapes in Sulawesi that Salvador Dali might have dreamed up. Time to leave reason at the surface.
