sketchbook 23/12/09

The last spread in my current sketchbook. I had a lot of fun drawing the snapping turtle at the ROM today. Apparently snapping turtles are an invasive species to the Great Lakes ecosystem and as a result, are creating quite a bit of havoc to the natural native flora and fauna.

When my dad was in the hospital, he roomed with a few gentlemen. This is his second roommate, Guido. I kid you not.

This spread was a reaction to the first day back to the ROM in about a month. My main objective was to lay down a lot of ink. Subject matter wasn't too important.

My sister renewed my membership to the ROM and I have to say it is one of the most thoughtful birthday gifts i've ever received!

Hooray for people who give you gifts you actually want! ;) I just love the sketch of Guido in the backless gown!

Happy holidays to you Wil! I hope you have a super time and I look forward to more fantastic sketches on 2010!
