Drawing at the Zoo (or "three black stripes make a zebra")

A visit to Riga Zoo at this time of year is always a must - the ice has finally started to melt, spring is in the air, and the animals have woken up and are a-snuffling.
Every time we go to the zoo we draw.  Usually it was just Tiss but now Mikus has started as well.  Its a great pastime, because it makes the boys stop and examine the animals more closely.  This time, Mikus' rendition of a camel (complete with a very realistic pooing action) was priceless, and Tiss sketched an incredibly lifelike stick insect.  The fun bit was guessing which animals they were at the end - because I (M) had to work ALL WEEKEND, and only got the second-hand stories of the animals they saw.

  1. Great pictures. I particularly like the zoo re-creation at home. Great job, Matiss!

    It brings to mind Dr Seuss's "If I Ran The Zoo" book, one of my childhood favourites. :-)
