Natural History Museum and LA Zoo
Mattel gives 2 weeks off for Christmas break (love my job!). We didn’t travel for Christmas this year, and my friends don’t get that much time off, so I had a a few extra days to go on some mini sketch adventures around LA by myself. I went to the Zoo and the Natural History Museum.
Mammoth skeleton and mineral room. Mineral room is my favorite!
Dino bones and Aztec section.
Drawings of the taxidermy at the LA Natural History museum.
These are from a few different visits. I always plan to try to draw people, but I tend to gravitate towards the buildings.
spent way too long on this one…
Drawing of the girl playing Merida
I like to play with handwritten fonts. I rarely like my own handwriting.
I went to visit my childhood dog one last time before she had to be put down. I said goodbye and drew her.
I always use the very last page in my sketchbook as a spot to test new materials, blot leaky pens, test wether things are waterproof, etc. This is also helpful when I get to the very end of the book because there is one less page to fill at the back and I get antsy to start a new book.
