Wildlife Waystation!

On Sunday I had the opportunity to go drawing at the Wildlife Waystation with good chums Alice Herring and Megan Nicole Dong. It was really incredible to get to draw all sorts of animals up close. The Waystation has done a lot for so many animals and is a really wonderful organization, so if you have the chance I definitely recommend visiting! (thanks for the invite, Alice!). Sketches!









(yes. this actually happened.)

Your lines always have such unique character about them. Bears with mandolins? I smell an idea for a disney movie!

I don't know if they do public tours (we got in through a friend) but if you ever have a chance to go, take it! The place is beautiful, and you get to see the animals up close in a way you never could at the zoo! :)
