Last weekend I went to the zoo in Washington D.C. I was surprised at how nice it was there. I went thinking that it was going to be lame, but Oh, how I was mistaken! They had a huge variety of animals to see, it was very clean and beautiful, and best of all, it's FREE to get in! Here are some drawings of some of the animals I saw there. There were also some birds there that I saw, Guira Cuckoos, that always sat in little groups. They're very odd looking and I thought they would make great characters in a story. I'll keep them in mind for future reference!
In other news, The Mahogany Door cover illustration is finally complete! (Can't post it just yet!) So technically, my work on the book is done...I can't believe it. I've been working on this project since April, and sometime in the spring, it will be printed and available for purchase! I can't wait!
