the friday archives


Today's archived drawing is from a class outing to The Melbourne Royal Zoo back in 1999.

This poor guy was being laughed at and teased by a group of school boys. He looked so sad and affected by all the taunting. I sat and tried to capture his sadness in the amount of time I could. Poor little one! Every time I look at this drawing it just brings back the feelings I felt for him.

Beautiful. You captured it well.

you captured it well. I can feel his sadness. :o( (I can't help but feel pissed off that boys would taunt a creature behind bars, and one that can obviously understand.)

Oh you did capture his sadness - very moving.

i think this illustrates one of the many reasons I don't like zoos.
