Franklin Park Zoo Sketches by babbletrish Franklin Park Zoo Sketches by babbletrish
Pencil and watercolor. I visited the Franklin Park Zoo and wisely brought along a travel watercolor kit. And patient friends.

Oh cool!

The Oklahoma City Zoo has a lot of similar animals.

I should try this...

hehe! I know when you visit a zoo on a hot afternoon, all the nocturnal animals are sleeping and all the diurnal ones are either hiding or napping in a sunbeam. But rather than being discouraged you've reproduced these great critters in typical sleeping poses- and they translate really well onto the page from a pose you'd definately see in the 'field'. Absolutely great posing in general as well.

That fruit bat is the cutest fruit bat in the history of everything to ever be a fruit bat.

What's great (or awful, depending) is that as I was sketching him and going, "Aww", I heard a voice. It said, "You gotta be kidding!"

I turned and there was a woman staring at me. She then preceded to share with me and everyone within earshot how terrified she is of bats and how she made her husband reinforce the windows and whatnot to keep them out even though she's never seen one and she doesn't want to ever get bit or have them crash into her hair and on and on to exhaustion.

All the while, she has not moved one inch away from the room full of fruitbats. Yeah.
