Yom Tov!

While we were on a conference call with Israel's minister of tourism and their PR agency today, I noticed that we have a couple of giraffe sculptures in our conference room. Which reminded me about my vow to draw whatever animals (or animalish things) you guys requested.

So today commences my little art experiment, this time in Technicolor, with "Gemma the Giraffe" (pen and crayon on lined paper) per request of the exceedingly cool Jennifer (AN ART TEACHER!) from Jen Loves Kev.

You can click on the image to enlarge it and get a better look at Gemma.

P.S. I did NOT draw this while on the phone with the minister.

So the girl can write and illustrate. Huh.

"So the girl can write and illustrate. Huh."

All that is left for you to prove is that you can juggle and maybe walk on water and you achieve some level of blogger deity.

Slamdunk—Well there's no doubt about it: I cannot juggle. Or whistle. I can however glide effortlessly through the water while wearing my swim cap.

I felt like I was at the zoo. I didn't know the zoo really named their animals.

Natalie—I don't mean to make anyone look bad. My sole intention is to make myself look better.

Jennifer—I live to please.

Jennifer said...

Have you ever considered writing AND illustrating children's books? Seriously, I think you would be amazing at it! . . . and when you get rich and famous from it I can take the credit for suggesting your life changing career move! :)

Erin said...

Jennifer (the second)—I actually used to want to do just that. Perhaps I should consider trying?

Also, do they give the Pulitzer for children's books?

Boss said...

Now I know what you were thinking the whole time you were on that call! You're so silly.

Jen said...

That's adorable!
