The Zoo


Illustration Friday this week tackles The Zoo.

I have drawn out a menagerie of the animals I would have in MY Zoo. Oh sure....anyone can have a Lion or an Elephant, but how many have a Short Snouted Shuffalo? Hmmmmm?




I rarely show my roughs and I have no idea why. Looking at them they have a certain charm and seeing the way the Shuffalo turned out it is easy to imagine how the others will look. John Quinn recently said in a comment to someone else that seeing the development is interesting and exciting so.......I hope these have some excitement or interest!

Two of them don't have names yet but certainly have a story. This has been a fun topic.
