Final Summer Moments

For one of our last summer outings me Nic and Paul decided we should go to the zoo. So we did, and what I have here are the few decent drawings that came out of this trip that served me one, and one purpose only: To show how rusty I have become.
Nonetheless I decided I should post these anyways.

I hope I don't scare you guys off!

All artists should keep a sketchbook and draw in it mercilessly, until the pages fall into dust and your finger becomes a pencil. I always have 3 or 4 on the go at once - for my ever-changing moods. I like to draw when I'm watching TV! Or waiting for a tardy friend in a public place. If you have a sketchbook, you still look friendless, but at least you're not bored.

Here are a couple of pages from the last month or so that you may enjoy. Or find awful.

I think the above page is good because it captures many of my preoccupations at once.

This page on the other hand is merely testimony to what I was watching at the time. Can you guess what it was? It wasn't terribly good.
