  19. 19. My Personal Favourite…<br />My personal farvourites are X and Ray’s adventures, in which there are a few paintings off. I like the idea that they are continuously looking and searching, as an unlikely duo. Here, Onus uses his own dog, who was a part dingo as his model. I like that the dog’s companion is a stingray as they are an unlikely duo. I also believe that these characters are the most likely to interest students.<br />
  20. 20. The ongoing adventures of X and Ray<br />Accessed from:<br />www.fireworksgallery.com.au<br />The next few slides are all from this website.<br />They are all versions of X and Rays adventures.<br />

  25. 25. Main Ideas<br />The key ideas that we want students to understand are:<br />Why Lin Onus created his work,<br />How he wanted to make people feel,<br />What he hoped to accomplish,<br />and if his dreams were ever accomplished.<br />Lin Onus leaves behind a legacy that we can fill by bridging the gap between cultures. By educating today’s generations, we are fulfilling his wishes.<br />
