July Inspirations

Last month was full of drawing, friends, family, and good food, and since we just got back from a quick trip to the Cape I thought I’d share a handful of visual inspirations from July. These images represent in some way the things currently knocking around in my brain:

Toad found near the bike path taken to the beach on Cape Cod. I haven't held such a small creature in quite a long time.

 

Gray seal colony of several hundred individuals. The pups practiced their swimming as the adults napped.

 

Sandy dunes on the Cape. I wouldn't mind owning a summer home here, not one little bit.

 

The Domino Sugar plant on the East River bank across from Manhattan, taken from a river cruise ferry. I love the fonts and the mood of the building.

 

A trash boat leaving Manhattan, also taken from the ferry. Catching glimpses of the trash subway trains at night has piqued my curiosity about where it all goes.

 

A very quick sketch of an african elephant in the Museum of Natural History. These animals are just so gorgeous!

 

A baby elephant learning to walk immediately after birth. Check out YouTube for some incredible videos.

I look forward to whatever it is that August holds. In the meantime back to my work on CITIES!
