I'm a man of my word.

I said I was going to make a show flier out of this and that's what I've done. See? There's even two of them. With border and without. My grandparents would NOT understand this if they saw it.

Old Man Giraffe

Despite what you might think, this guy wouldn't stick his neck out for anyone.

I felt a little ripped off by my previous Giraffe sketch because I didn't get to draw it's head so I'm making up for it in this one. The shape of the head has so many different rises and shadows that make it a pleasure to draw. Not to mention trying to capture the texture of it's skin. Here are some fun facts about Giraffes that I learned from my Flickr group. (thanks Kaitlin)

1. Giraffes have no voice box. How do they recite poetry to one another and complain about the temperature of their soup in restaurants? This is one of life's ongoing mysteries.

2. Giraffes have the same number of vertebrae in their necks as humans, only theirs are just way bigger. We're talking huge.

UPDATE: Now for sale at my Etsy store!

Party like it's eleven years after 1999...

Obviously I intended for this to be finished a little earlier. At least sometime in January. Computer complications...yada, yada, least it's here now. Maybe someday I'll get to my Courtney Love Valentine's day greeting.

"Don't try them Lottie! They're HOT!"

What my grandfather said after he tried one of my Thai Lime and Chili cashews from Trader Joe's. I'm thinking of turning this into a show flier.
