Old Zoo Picture


While we were throwing stuff away from overstuffed closets, I ran across this xerox of a painting I did a while back and then forgot all about. I would paint it a ton differently now, but I guess that’s how it’ll always go. I mean, the first issue is, I paint like how I draw, and how I draw is how you draw when you don’t exactly know much about the proper operation of pens or pencils. The second issue is, it seems I lack pretty much all knowledge of animal anatomy. Like, I can mostly tell the front end from the back end and which way’s the right way up, but beyond that, I’m totally lost. Although not long ago I found this one old drawing from a million years B.C. that appears to indicate I once sort of knew how lizards worked. “Appears” and “sort of” being important caveats here.
