On Saturday, my friends and I visited to LA zoo to study the animals. I definately need to make this zoo a regular sketch-spot next year....here are a couple of the sketches, not great by any standard, but I have to start somewhere:
Side-commentary: While drawing the ring-tailed lemurs(the gray ones with the black/white tails), I overheard a grand total of 5 or so references to Dreamwork's Madagascar from different families. King Julian is very popular with both the parents and kids.
In-between drawing I'd occasionally pull out my camera--I have more drawings than photos:
The baby giraffe that now lives in the zoo. Absolutely an adorable lil guy.
And a nice big ol' alligator grin to wrap up this post.
