For a whatever reasons, 90% of my year group was missing the Monday before the Christmas break. So, in order to get in gear for our upcoming annual migration to Africa, I used the unexpected free time to sketch some animals (you may recognise the subjects from some of my mother’s pictures. Oops. Do copyright laws apply inter-familially?)

These are a bit rough – the most I spent on any one of them was an hour, but they average out at about 30 minutes.

Manifestations of Boredom

So I discovered this grey paper that actually feels like it should be awful to draw on but isn’t… awesome. I made off with an entire stack and am industriously working my way through it.

The first was inspired by a cassowary documentary I had been watching (this is a show I definitely recommend to anyone interested in what lies beneath the skin of evolution… literally), but is otherwise drawn without a reference or any real purpose other than an excuse for not studying for my German oral exam.

Carnassial was done while listening to a series of lectures on the Hong Kong art scene (I swear drawing helps me focus), likewise without a reference. Doodles!
