We went to the Carnegie Museum of Natural History today. This life-sized model of a Black Rhinoceros stands at the entrance to a series of African habitat exhibits. I love that some parts of this area are behind glass and some extend out into the space where you walk, sit, draw.

To continue playing with natural pigments from around the house, I came home and rubbed the ink drawing with used coffee grounds (espresso, natch) for color.


I bet your moleskine is starting to accumulate some interesting smells. I love this drawing too. Very nice.

Love this rhino! I was at the zoo yesterday with theo (eloise had a bday party to attend) and we saw three rhinos--I was thinking how much I'd love to draw them --with their grumpy demeanor and prehistoric-feeling armor. Coffee grounds seem like a perfect match for color and attitude!
