We went to the Natural History Museum to draw one of the dioramas today, and I chose the leopard and the bushpig. Throughout the time I was drawing, families kept coming up to the diorama, and no matter what language they were speaking it was "Blah blah blah blah bushpig." I was really starting to like the word "bushpig" after a few hours.

So for my painting class, we were supposed to create an illustration of ourselves as any animal we wanted! I chose a gibbon (because who doesn't love a gibbon?) who is eating dumplings (my favorite food) and clearing away a spot in his mess of a room to draw. He stole my glasses and my pen, too...Now for this week, we are making an oil painting of the same composition.

Last Friday I went to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens with my drawing class where we were supposed to sketch different plants to use for a single composition later. Here are my sketches, my thumbnails, and then the final drawing. I realized everything I've been drawing this semester has been kind of creepy or black and white (there're a lot of snakes and spiders and Frankenstein the works) so it was fun to do something colorful and pretty instead!
