From my other, more occasional, sketchbook: an African lion from the Discovery Room at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. The youngest member of the household had been very patient as I finished my drawing upstairs in the Museum of Art, and so we spent an equivalent amount of time touching and talking and exploring the displays in the Discovery Room. This effort was rapid - ink, brush pen, and waterbrush - on paper that takes more kindly to wet media than my Moleskine. I think I will stick with the Moleskines through the end of this year - but after that...


he's great, such a feel of movement (and sound!) in this

wild and wonderful--such energy! my favorite.

I really like the flow of these brush strokes!

Did you see the pics I posted of the W/N notebook (in response to Maria's inquiry). Or else I'm going to start making my own. I really like the Aquabee Super Deluxe paper best for sketch/wash.
