Oh my goodness! This was in my queue and I meant to write something for it. But then life took over and AAAGH!
I did a bunch of these animals while at the Museum of Natural History with two of my best friends Kate and Lauren. I love going and sketching with them. Just good company, fun stuff to look at, and then usually a meal and good conversation after. That, really, is all I need in life. I love going, all three of us lined up on a bench, using different materials, drawing in different styles, and having pedestrians walk by, stop and talk with the three of us together. It’s a great icebreaker to talk to people you would normally not talk to. We love getting old ladies chattin’ and cracking jokes, too.
And now that the Theodore Roosevelt Room of North American Animals opened back up (it was closed ALL summer!), we’ve got to go and get another sketching trip out of it.
