Babies at the zoo!!! I had a special time at the Oregon Zoo yesterday with my sketchbook. The baby otter was out with mom, playing in a freshly dropped pile of snow and getting swim lessons. After was a wrestle fest in the den to get dry and warm.
Another few animals caught my attention between that and when I reached the lion cubs. Then I spent the rest of my time drawing with the cubs!
I hardly did the cuteness justice. Drawing live lion cubs playing in the rain (they were caked with mud, by the way) is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Thank you Oregon Zoo!
I made a few season's greetings cards for a few (lucky?) people this year, each of which was an individual watercolor painting. This is my lovely 6-foot ficus that got decorated for Christmas instead of a traditional evergreen. Each card turned out a little different.
My latest finished short film, Zombie Fairy, is officially complete! It has been in the works for nearly 3 years. I am in the process of sending it to festivals and I will update this blog when I've found out when and where it's showing. Here are some production shots to get you teased!
