Zoo Boo








"You painted what on me? Surely you jest," barked the Moose. The Beaver boldly raised his arm and proclaimed, "I dared and I did. And don't call me Shirley!"



Gesture is the theme of the day over at http://www.illustrationfriday.com/ I've actually been thinking of this illustration lately. Because last weekend was supposed to be our annual MNSCBWI Field trip to the Zoo. I illustrated this piece for the promotional flyer last year. But between the State
Government shut down and our beloved illustrator coordinator moving away, http://christinarodriguez.com/blog/ Zoo Day was a bust. Nadda. Maybe it is being scheduled as we speak. Zoo Boo Hoo.
