Meerkat Sketch by ellismorleyphto

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Someone left a pencil lying around. I could not resist.

Sometimes I draw like a 5 year old, sometimes inspiration hits. When it does I use it. I can never, but NEVER draw something a second time, unless it is from my own imagination and very cartoony. So when I manage to draw something I like, I photograph it and try to keep the original drawing.

I hope that you like this too. It’s ok if you don’t, I don’t mind :-) I still thought I would share it. I hope I don’t lose the original so on that wonderful day when I have a scanner or when I am near a better camera, I can upload a better version of it.

Drawing HB pencil on scrap copier paper 29th April 2013.
Photo of drawing taken with Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone and uploaded via email.

I knew I wanted to draw a meerkat, I chose to use this one to guide me. It’s not intended as a copy of the photo.
