we’re all strange animals


So…I think I mentioned a while back that I’ve been reading a book called The Animal Manifesto. It has got me thinking about the relationship between humans, animals and the earth. I’d recommend this book to anyone!! It’s really fascinating. For the past while I’ve found myself really interested in all kinds of animals, and I tend to gravitate towards these books in the library. I love to learn all about their habits and their systems. I think its so great how every creature has a very distinct purpose, and is usually perfect at whatever they were born to do. For example a cat knows exactly how to be a cat, and a bird knows how to be a bird, and they do their job to perfection! It makes me remember that we shouldn’t stress to much thinking that we are “not good enough”. Maybe whatever you ARE good at is what you are meant to do! Besides, who else can do exactly what you do in the exact same way? No one!

So, I’ve been drawing more animals. Here as just some sketches I whipped up a few days ago. I’m not sure exactly where I am going with these, but they were fun to draw. I think I’ll take a trip to the natural history museum soon and see what they have there to get some good studies.

Happy Wednesday! 🙂
