London Zoo sketches.

With the boys at London Zoo.
In the week all the animals come out. Almost like there is Saturday staff animals at the weekend and these are the professionals.
Anyway it was great fun and instead of shooting the rare breeds with a camera, out came the sketchbook.

Spiders. Some are the husks of former spiders, discarded when they outgrew their hairy clothes.

Trying to capture the fear I have of little

The Lions were positively posing. My first drawings of the day, so they are a bit stiff.

See the animals were on show.

The tigers were frolicking, kids jumping on their mum like they were in a nature doc. Plus meerkats which underwhelm me. As you can see from my sketches of them.

The pygmy hippo was less energetic. And therefore easier to draw.

As were the Sloths. Sunning themselves on a lamp. They were great. Nice fur. They like mango too.

Ring tailed lemurs for Madagascar. Startled and brainy?

These Amazonian river fish are my favourite fish in the zoo. Alex drew them too.
