Here’s yesterday’s fennec printed. They were one of my favourite animals when I was a
kid and if I remember correctly it was the first animal I drew live at the
ARTIS Amsterdam Royal Zoo.

Since then I drew many, many times at the zoo. In a way I’m not a fan of zoos in
general but they do make it easy for artists to draw animals live instead of using pictures.

Not showing the face again just because this is what they look like when I visit at the zoo. Always.

At the last moment I decided to add a little hint of an eye. The so called robbers mask was
a bit too black without it I think. Mischief managed.
Oh, and a good night's rest did help!

Cutting this raccoon was actually the first time my hands started to hurt. I expected that to
happen much earlier. As some people asked a while ago my fingertips feel funny, my thumb
hurts and also my old injury started to act up. I hope a good night’s sleep will help…

Yay, also happy with this one! I love how the fur looks like a wavy surface.
After this one I can actually picture myself making birth announcements like this!
