Queens Zoo


I went to the queens zoo the other day for the first time in over a decade. I had lots of fun, since the smaller size of the zoo makes for viewing and drawing the animals easier. You didn't have annoying kids banging on the poor animals caged to get their attention, and since all the animals were native to the northeast, they seemed more comfortable. 
Here are 2 pages from the many o did that day that i liked the most. I try to give you as clear and exact an image of my sketchbook pages as i can, usually, so if something is illegible, that's how i drew it. Have fun trying to decipher what that image above the bear is. I may go back again soon as since the days are getting nicer, but schools aren't yet out, i'll still mostly have the zoo to myself. Enjoy as always....
