One a (week)day: Day 185 – The Zoo

Piece number 185 (11/23/07). It’s been a week and now it’s time for another installment of Illustration Friday with the theme being “The Zoo”. I LOVE this topic. I just adore going to zoo, aquariums, and such. The hardest part of this theme was choosing which animal to do. So I though about past zoo experiences and one story is particular came to mind.

My husband and I were at the aquarium’s rain forest exhibit. He said, “Hey! look its a sloth.” I could not find it in the trees. He just kept pointing for the next five minutes and I still could not find it. At this point one of the keepers came over and tried to help. Everytime he pointed and said it’s right there his voice got louder and louder and louder – he was getting frustrated with me because I could not see this small brown blog attached to a tree branch. Finally after another 10 minutes the little guy (the sloth) scratched his butt and I saw him and I have been in love with sloths every since.

4″x 6″:: $45 unframed original piece, $75 framed original piece. Once the original sells, limited edition prints (of 100) will be available for $25 (unframed). The original of this has been sold and is available as a print.

Take a look at the details – there was a lot of work done to the paper. And I love his little nose.

There are quite a few other pieces I have done this year which would have also been perfect for this theme. Take a look through the other 184 previous pieces done this year to find them. (Hints: frog, elephant, peacock, giraffe, flamingo, seahorse, octopus, koi, grasshopper, monkey, chameleon, and more)
