The truth is I’m more active on Tumblr than WordPress. It’s not that I like the format more, but I do appreciate the instant gratification the note system gives. That said, a Twitter friend reminded me I should keep this page active. So, here is a painting of a red panda I made at the Philadelphia 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.
