"Peter and Paul"-The Flying Moleskins 12" x 9", mixed media on paper

This is my entry into James Parker's world of Wildlife. It's part of the Flying Moleskins exchange between 13 artists

I know James is sooo funny, so I decided to sketch these funny looking animals from the London Zoo. I forgot to take note of what actually they are called, so, can someone help me out?



I have called them Peter and Paul!

For this piece I have used graphite, ink, tom bow wash pens, ball point pens, coloured pencils, wax crayons, acrylic and my beloved oil base pencil on an off white cardboard sheet.

I'm mesmerized by your masterful rendering of the skull on the man on the right in the top drawings. So sculptural, love it.
