    Description

    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.

    This really speaks to me. Well done!

    Just an amazing work of art.

    Amazing watercolor.

    Beautiful, can feel the quiet and almost a cricket.

    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.
