Babes in the Jungle

A friend of mine is due to have a little boy soon and I thought boys like jungle animals right?  I’m sure jungle animals like kids…

Anyway, I’m conjuring an illustrated photo frame, some of the apetures will contain animals, some will be left free for my friend to put photos of her beautiful baby boy.

Here are some of my sketchbook paintings that I worked from.  I was a little sad to find the snake didn’t quite fit, but I hope to find a use for him somewhere…

And here’s a sketch of a lion – I liked it too much to dismiss it as ‘sketchbook crap’ to never see the light of day again.
