    This is a scratch-board and ink rendering of a young giraffe that I saw at the San Diego Zoo.  I like to try and capture the essence of youth and innocence in young animals.

     It takes patience and many hours to use Xacto blades and tattoo needles to draw and scratch out the black ink on the background. Then apply colored inks and re-scratch again.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.

    Fun and very well done.

    Fantastic light!


    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.
