Day at the Academy

Today, I went to the Academy of Natural Sciences. They were having their Paleo-Palooza festival (dinosaurs!!!), so obviously I nerded out entirely. After freaking out over dinosaur bones and the possibility of cloning and riding one (and afterward remembering the plot of Jurassic Park and scrapping that idea entirely), I did some sketching in front of the museum's many dioramas.

I'm fairly pleased, since I haven't drawn from "life (get it? cause they're stuffed...*cough*)" in a long time--especially not animals. I wish my collection of objects to draw was as expansive as a museum.

I was so inspired by these guys. Like, insanely so. I need to put them into and onto everything I make now.
