Allosaurus fragilis

Nearing the end of this toned paper sketchbook and I'm still on a naturalist painting kick. It's been a long time since I've watercolored dino bones. Soooo much fun.

Spotted Orbweaver (Neoscona crucifera)

Felt crazy inspired by some wonderful naturalist painting prints I picked up last weekend. Me and a friend sketched some spiders over lunch off of some photos I had taken in West Virginia a few years back. These guys would creep out nightly and make webs in between the cross beams of the porch. We'd sit for hours, chill, laugh, enjoy the night sky and maybe even feed a couple of a stray moth or two. Great memories from those trips. The raccoon vertebrae I sketched up at another friends house that evening.

Monster Sketch

This guy is an oldie from the sketchbook that I never got around to posting. Sketched him up at the beginning of a nasty cold. Couldn't breathe out of my nose...neither could this guy.

Spotted Genet (Genetta genetta)

Saw a Genet (pronounced [JEN-it]) at the zoo for the first time last weekend.  Watch the little guy explore his habitat for a while and curl up in a little nest like a house cat. Teeth shattering sugar coated cuteness! Had this little cat, weasel, raccoon looking guy floating around my head all week.
