An Afternoon at the Honolulu Zoo

Here are some sketches of animals I made at the Honolulu Zoo.

I was lucky enough to catch the elephants at their happiest, bath time.

The flamingoes in Hawaii are more orangey pink than the reddish pink I am used to seeing.

The turtles, lemurs, and gibbons shared a living space.

These hippoes were quite fond of one another.

The tigers were beyond gorgeous, but moved around the most, making drawing difficult.

Giraffes, zebra, and a rhino.

Before my trip to this zoo I did not know what a gharial was. Now I do and I sort of wish I didn’t. They are absolutely horrifying. Fun to draw, but horrifying.

I was so absorbed with the gharial section that I drew the trees around it.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day from the gibbons. Although gibbons do no celebrate Valentines Day, they are good sports about wishing us happiness as we celebrate this day of love.

Gibbons are monogamous. These two white cheeked gibbons are the last animals I’m featuring in my Valentine’s weekend mate for life series.

Scribbly Gibbons. India ink on cotton paper. 5″x5″.
