looking for the moose...



haven't seen the moose in awhile. took a hike yesterday, found old droppings and a few tracks. i didn't see any deer tracks or droppings. hope this winter wasn't too severe for them (deer)...

I WANT to see an elk (moose)! Here We had a long and cold winter and so many animals had some problems...coming near the houses...
nice illustration as always. You know, I like so much all your animals and insects! And the portraits, the landscapes...

Beautiful how you put the moose baby in this almost empty space. It almost emphasis a loss, a loneliness...

Hope you'll find them, where there are droppings...

I have really enjoyed browsing through your work. Very distinctive work with great use of line and space.

This is really great. I've always found it a little difficult to get a realistic approach for animal fur as it's seen straight on, with the shadows and highlights done well enough to look convincing. This is a really great job, and it amazes me that you do it so well in marker.

Thanks for the comments, i ran into the moose a couple days ago! i'll be back to drawing soon, i've fallen behind on that... been working in clay for an upcoming show.

he he i love the moose theme. very cool. they are strange animals - sort of melancholic in a way.
