In the jungle, the mighty jungle...

Jungle Gardens might be a small little zoo in Sarasota, FL, but it sure is fun to bike over there and draw their animals. They don't have a very big collection, but they have a lot of loud birds and some interesting reptiles and lemurs. Oh! and one single spider monkey.

Here are some gestural drawings from my two visits to Jungle Gardens the past week.

 And here are some squematic drawings that are based more on construction.
By the way, flamingos are far scarier than they seem. Especially when they are nibbling on your sketchbooks and looking at you with their beady eyes.


  1. Those flamingo constructions are so boss! Also, some of your macaws look really sweet; my favorite is the one in between the swan and the koi fish.

  2. SCHEMATIC DRAWINGS AR SUUPER SWEET!! Especially your fish. He also makes me rather hungry.
