So! This has been done for a while, but I never posted the final. This is Melati, a 43-year-old orangutan living at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. I had a great time drawing them! Apparently they love to watch people draw--Melati came and sat on a ledge just above me and watched very intently while I sketched her and snapped some pictures. Another female, Chinta, noticed and came over to sit down right in front of me. They were both interested in my drawings, but didn’t much care for the camera. A couple times Chinta even whacked the glass lightly with her knuckles when I stopped drawing to take photos.  

I’ve only experimented a bit with scratchboard; this is my first full illustration using it.  I like the effect a lot, but it’s kind of a trip to have to keep reminding myself that to make shadows and dark areas work I have to leave them alone.  That and knowing that every mark I make is indelible. o_o

“Women, Infants and Children first!” is a time-honored custom for ships of state that has saved countless innocent lives. A good cartoon.

how do you patch things up when there’s nothing to patch?good lord i’m tired of conservative political cartoons.

I was expecting the punchline to be “we would all drown”.

The tide of 90s nostalgia continues to rise, so I thought I’d break this out again to set the record straight.
