#122 Gabe Slavitt Guest Drawing of the Gnu

Animalia: Guest Artist!
Gabe Slavitt - the Gnu

So, no Mexican Mole Rat today(I know, try to hold back the tears),
But! Instead we have a super special guest artist.

I asked my good friend and former roomie Gabriel Slavitt
if he would draw a Gnu for me, which he did.
While I was in Kansas City, we met up and there was a handoff,
and now it is here for your consumption.

I added a bit of color for the final bit.

Also, you can look and both Nick's Gnu and
my original Gnu if you feel so inclined.

#121 The Marmoset

Animalia: Day 100! Swoop!
The Marmoset

Swooooop. Figure 100.
Since there are about 183 animals on our list, we are over halfway done,
butttttt.... since I am now in grad school, the second half
will probably take a LOT more than the first half did.

Also, if you compare my nephew's face (top right)
to that of a marmoset, you might be convinced that he is one.

(probably not actually) Tomorrow: the Mexican Mole Lizard

#120 The Mantis

Animalia: Day 99
The Mantis

All I really know about mantises(pl?) is that
the females eat the males after mating.

That and they use really fancy silverware.

Mainly the body was hard to draw, so I put a table in front of it.

Tomorrow(maybe?): the Marmoset

#118 The Lystrosaur

Animalia: Day 97
The Lystrosaur

Lystrosaurs are cool. I colored mine purple.
I know, Barney is purple... Get over it.

Look em up though, they're exciting looking.

SORRYYYYY for the delay.

I get consistent internet on the 31st.
We'll see how animals suffer as a result of me going to grad school.

Tomorrow (but not really): the Manta Ray
