Giraffe-building

Over the past week or so I've been practicing different graphite textures with this giraffe. Early on, Jefferson walked across it and left paw-prints. I decided to keep at it anyway.  

Also, Giraffe Fact: Its "horns" are called ossicones and are made of cartilage.

Jefferson and Seoul again...

Some of my ink drawings are going up in a coffee shop in Seoul this weekend. As you can see, Jefferson is trying hard to contain his excitement, and also his disappointment that he and Violet will be left at home.

Seoul exhibition!

A couple of weeks ago Jefferson shot to fame when my pencil drawing of him was included in a one-night exhibition in the Mullae Art Village area of Seoul.

Dream of a cat...Jefferson sleeping

Jefferson has fantastical giant lion-paws. I like to photograph their hugeness, and a few days ago finished drawing them.
