San Diego Wild Animal Park

We were fortunate to have relatively mild weather for our trip to San Diego's Wild Animal Park yesterday! It's not exactly the best place for zoo drawing, since most of the animals are pretty far away. But it's incredible to see entire HERDS of animals roaming the hundreds of acres of land. It's a lot different from traditional zoos, and the animals seem pretty happy there. They're really active and hide often, so it was hard to capture them in the sketchbook! I had to settle for quick, rough drawings. Here are a few of my faves:

Baby giraffe and Shoebill

Evil-looking bird and Tiki Stilt-walker
