2015 Sketches: March and April
In February I decided to take a short animal illustration class at Lillstreet Art Center and found the experience rewarding, mostly for the community, inspiration, and motivation that I got from it. The first two illustrations here came from that class. I plan on staying involved in this lively community and have signed up for an embroidery class for May, which I plan on using as another way to express biological visualization and for fun. The second two images here are samplings of sketches I did on trips to the Lincoln Park Zoo. Though it can be difficult to capture animals in motion, I found the experience very relaxing, and enjoyed spending time observing the way the animals move and behave.
