I fell in love with the monkeys today. This baboon was one of my favorites. The rainforest exhibit was crawling with all types of crazy monkeys. We spotted two babies which was where I focused my attention. I am such a girl. The best part of the zoo today was the new exhibit. The baboons there are amazing. They actually looked like cartoons, which made my job very easy. The king baboon, I dubbed him that because of his demanding personality, decided to bawl out one of his kids in front of me. Luckily his lecture lasted long enough for me to take a stab at it. Something about the whole thing reminded me of my childhood. Haha.
I was surprised when I got home and looked at my sketchbook. It might as well have been a day at the aquarium. Here are some of my favorite fish (and pig nosed turtles) in the rainforest exhibit.
By the end of the day we were so tired. . .

I've been working on this one for a few days. She's a little Italian girl. At this age she wanted to run away and join the circus. The the backbend in the drawing was her signature trick. Yes, she's picking up a handkerchief with her teeth! I decided to add some Italian movie posters on the wall. The text for the entire book stresses how much she has always loved movies.

I've recently been handed this great contract. I'm working on a book about the life of a CEO. The book showcases both his life and his wife's life. I started with character designs following photo reference and ended up here. Now I'm just running with it. I am hoping this brand, spanking new blog will give me a kick in the pants. As master of my domain I plan on having some fun kicking around the old pencils.
