Mubusu #4, Pushing Onward Slowly

Here update #4 for Mubusu, two year old chimpanzee at our local zoo, he is still coming along at a slower pace than I would like. I want apologize for how long this is taking. I have been struggling with issues from my hand injury from the car accident a year ago or so. And more graphic design and yarn commissions (Ewoks, Houndstooth, Slouchies).

On other fronts keep your eye out for some more furry friend portraits another fluffy kitty and two dogs. YEAH!!!

Mubusu #3, Made it Out of the Rabbit Hole

Its been quite a busy summer, with trips, and commissions (mainly graphic design and hats). I finally emerged from my metaphorical rabbit hole and to find my drawing board, which I sorely missed. Here is the latest update for Mubusu, two year old chimpanzee, it is coming along though I wish it was faster. He is still up to a toddler’s antics, I am lucky enough to visit him regularly. Since its been a while I hope that I am still working the same on the piece as earlier in the project.

Chimpanzee #2, the cute face

The Genus for a Chimpanzee is Pan. Which is also the name for the mythic faerie figure who protects nature most often pictured playing a flute.

I am making some progress. His personality is really starting to come through.

Monkeying around with a Chimpanzee

This cute little guy is about 2, my monkey and him see to have a lot in common. I have been so busy haven’t done a personal piece for a bit unless you call P.G. personal since it was a gift. I have started this little guy 4 times though. I was really excited about some Derwent Tinted Charcoal I picked up this week. So far I am not thrilled with it hence the 3 previous drawings. Sad I know, so to keep a possible artist’s block from hitting me square in the face I am moving on to charcoal, Generals (the orange ones). I have another idea for this chimpanzee, pastels hmmm… we will have to see when I can work that one in.

Here’s my start, the fourth one… hope to get more done tonight.
