I’m building a character called Thoreau. Or Darwin or Hawthorn or Melville, or whatever the wonderful Galapagos tortoise at the little zoo in the Park with the Stone Bridge in downtown Kekionga is going to end up being called. I’m not sure how mystical Thoreau is going to be, or whether he can talk or anything like that, but I certainly have plenty of photo references to use when I sit down to draw him.
(And if you think I am looking for a good reason to show you some more photographs of my new friend Emerson, well, that too. Read more about Emerson and how I met him in yesterday’s post.)
