This past semester was my final semester going to the Memphis Zoo to draw the animals every week. Each week, I tried to do at least a spread of some of the animals in the part of the zoo that we were in. Each drawing was done in pen and ink.
This piece is one of the final pieces in my series about the child's imagination.
For this piece, I have two children pretending to be cowboys and cowgirls out in the wild west. The environment surrounding them is a desert, with cactuses, a cow skull and even a steam train out in the background. Both children are catching a jackrabbit, which is running away from them.
Even though my BFA is over, my series of the child's imagination continues.
For this piece, I have two children swimming in the ocean. While they are swimming, they see a shipwreck in the bottom of the ocean. When they look over a ways, they see a large box shaped like a treasure chest surrounded by small fish and sea animals, and also some seaweed hiding it. They swim over to it and open it up. When they look inside, there are gold coins, some jewelry and even a key. Before they can even take the treasure, a large red crab sits up on top to guard it. Will the children ever get the treasure, or will the crab keep it all for itself?
