Where's Wallaby?

To promote the Atlas of Living Australia's 10 billionth entry(!), I came up with the idea to do a 'Where's Wally'-style find-a-wallaby for the public to play with. Here it is. It took 12 hours. About 6 hours for outlines and 6 hours for colour. It was quite fun to do. It's called 'Where's Wallaby' and there's (in)conspicuously, no wallaby. There was going to be, but I did the mammals last and got sick of drawing. That's acceptable, right?
