My favorite dino of the day is as follows, it is far from anatomically correct but it’s got something I want all of my drawings to have. When I look at it I can almost detach myself from it as if someone else drew it and my first thought is, whoever drew that had fun while they were drawing. That’s what an impulse I want in all of my work.
I really like the museum’s dinosaurs, they awe me and make me feel like a tiny child in a vast world, which is my favorite feeling. This time they weren’t my focus. We spent a lot of time in the North America rooms and I had one of my favorite moments with my sister while we just sat quietly and drew owls. There were plenty to draw and these were my two favorite. The case they have them in is lit in a creepy way. They made me want to run straight home to watch ‘Twin Peaks.’
I spent my fair share of time at the North American ducks
We visited the rhinos before we put the sketchbooks away. I can’t wait to go back.
