September Animal Art Series: Backyard Wildlife

In order to continue my mission to draw all the time and fill up more sketchbooks in 2016, I’ve been busy working on a new theme of drawings each week. At the end of the week, it’s nice to have lots of new drawings and a full page illustration. And I’m learning how to draw so many new things this year, which is really exciting!

I finished a fun series of illustrations in September for my animal art series with the theme backyard wildlife.

Week 37 Animal Art Series: Wily Fox

In order to continue my mission to draw all the time and fill up more sketchbooks in 2016, I’ve been busy working on a new theme of drawings each week. At the end of the week, it’s nice to have lots of new drawings and a full page illustration. And I’m learning how to draw so many new things this year, which is really exciting!

My theme for September is backyard wildlife, so week 37 in my animal art series features the fox. They have a reputation for being wily; have a bushy tail; weigh up to 15 pounds; feed on insects rodents, rabbits, and fruits; and are usually active at night.
