Blast from the Past #1

I'm working on a longer piece which I will ink and post later today or tomorrow.

For now, here's a page from my 1997 sketchbook when I was still drawing on newsprint...with crayons. Literally. I am forever indebted to my hometown friend, Yasmina Lee, for getting me my first real sketchbook with unlined, acid-free paper.

This was drawn from a photo in Life Magazine taken at the London Zoo. No date or credit, but I scrawled the caption in the corner: "Open wide...now say ahh..."I thought it was the funniest thing I ever saw.
If anyone can help me find the original photo, I'll credit the photographer!

I couldn't find the source of the picture, but this is definitely the picture:


Your drawing was spot on! :)
