Zoo Sketch 05.27.2010

Ian Bobinac - May 27th, 2010 - Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, IL

...and here, the zoo has decided to decorate with novelty lawn ornaments.
"I don't like small birds. They hop around so merrily outside my window, looking so innocent. but I know that secretly, they're watching my every move and plotting to beat me over the head with a large steel pipe and take my shoe."

Monkeys are boring.
"Monkeys are superior to men in this: when a monkey looks into a mirror, he sees a monkey."

It was hard to see the monkeys in the cages, so I drew the abundance of monkeys around me.
"Man is the only animal for whom his own existence is a problem which he has to solve"

"I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it's such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her."

I bet the muscles on these cats have atrophied. I didn't see a safari gym anywhere in sight.
"Dogs come when they're called; cats take a message and get back to you later."

Penguins and Puffins. That's fun to say.
"Penguins mate for life. That doesn't surprise me much because they all look alike. It's not like they're going to meet a really new, great looking penguin someday."

"Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms"

Topic for May: Zoo Day

I'm proposing that May's topic be "Day at the Zoo"- that way we're SURE to have at least some posts, since we're going to the zoo next week! So even if you don't find time to do an at-home concept, hopefully you can post your sketches from our upcoming field trip :)

Submissions could be anything: human visitors to the zoo, concepts for habitats, animals, etc...
