We were in Illustration classes when our instructor came up to us with a task for everybody. Today you have to find one or more animals that you favor and illustrate them. Hm… do something creative…

Some picked horses some, picked lions, some picked ducks.

Me… I picked the giraffe. Maybe it was because I am short and envied tall creatures.

Anyhow, my experiment in that class was a giraffe with the skin of zebras. I named it Gazeebra.

I encourage every artist to use animals as an inspiration when they face their thinkers’ block.
