I have in mind several pictures I'd like to make specifically for this event, and today I went on over to the academy to do some serious research.
Up above is Claude, the albino alligator who is going to be the star of my first large-scale work(s). He and I had a lengthy consultation, to make sure we are on the same page creatively.
This dour individual on the right was contemplating existentialist theory in the California Coast exhibit. We stared at each other for quite a while. I came to the conclusion that fish most definitely have souls... of some sort.
The African Penguins will be added to the Birds Who Have Opinions set, as well as take on supporting roles in some of the larger paintings.
I can't wait to show y'all what I have in mind!
