Drawing Philip

Drawing Philip the Sea Lion is fun fun fun! Here’s a sketch I did recently for Philip on the High Line.

Here’s the final drawing: http://philipthesealion.wordpress.com/2011/11/29/philip-the-sea-lion-5/.

You should visit the real High Line if you haven’t already.  You can find more info here: http://www.thehighline.org/.  In other news, I’m planning to open my very own Etsy store! With prints and mugs for sale. Stay tuned~~
