    Of course, looking at the many wonderful drawings you’ve made; makes me wish to go to the Zoo; and, have a go at drawing there, too. My nearest Zoo is London Zoo in Regent’s Park. If I ever do manage to get there; then, I’m sure, I’ll be thinking of ‘you’! BRILLIANT and EXCITING line work…WOW! ;-)

    The way you’ve gone and captured the animals character…the pose, the power, the strength, the movement…has got me looking again and again…endlessly. Sometimes, your drawings leave feeling really quite speechless…there’s nothing that can be said…just merely observe…and, hopefully, learn from the experience of merely observing a master artist at work! ;)

    If I could go Fav. this one a MILLION times…then, I certainly would!

  • wow Paul THANK YOU very much for all your comments….you are my biggest fan so far! Ive been drawing at the zoo for over 4 years and still see new things. Animals are an endless source of inspiration…as are the people who watch and look after them.What is the London zoo like?
