Orange Giraffe at the Denver Zoo
God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant and the cat. He has no real style, He just goes on trying other things.Pablo Picasso
The Zoo happens to be my favorite places of all times to draw and paint. Every chance I get I go there with the kids and plenty of sketching materials to go to town on collecting content. It is pretty cool that the people at the zoo entrance don’t mess with me about coming in with art supplies like some museums have in the past.
Giraffes are the tallest of Mammals and Over short distances, giraffes can run at speeds up to 35 mph and only need to drink water every couple of days. In a weird turn of events most Mommy giraffes will return to where they were born to birth their young where the baby will fall over five feet to the ground at birth. I suppose that is their way of spanking them in the butt like humans do to give them their first breath.
