Designs & Research

Creature concept sketches. I must note that the 6-legged, winged sheep-type creature near the top-right of this first page is not my idea. I was playing with Derek Thompson's cover illustration for one of his published sketch books.

Zoo sketches

Academy of Science sketches
(from taxidermy animals, photos, and skulls)

It's a Rosie explosion! These look amazing, sorry I didn't have longer to look at them the other day at the bus stop. I have the same Klipspringer drawing in my sketchbook from the Academy too! Did you see the Rock Hyrax a couple displays down. It looks like a Tazmanian Devil with an underbite and supposedly it's closest relative is an elephant! Hope you keep posting, it's inspirational and humbling!
