i'm almost done with my watercolor book entry! i'm not happy with the other two entries, i may just send it off anyway. i am a week late as it is...
listen to music and draw whatever comes to you.
it is very vague i know, i wish i had thought of something less abstract!
i am also including a mixed cd of the music i listened too. it's up to you if you want to do the same ;)

I finally landed on a theme. I was recently at the Field Natural History Museum in Chicago. I saw a display there that was counting something, it moved from 30 to 33 while I was standing there. then I read that it was recording all the animals that had become extinct since 8am that morning. It was only 1pm! I thought this was a staggering number. I'm not normally the type of person that tries to send a message with my art, I'm just a girl who likes to draw. But I haven't been able to get the number 33 out of my head. I don't want this book to become a downer for everyone, it's just an interest of mine at the moment. Morbid right?
Please, have fun! I only have one request, please add a bit of information to your entry. Date of extinction, habitat, any little tidbit of info you find interesting. Oh, and yes, dinosaurs are fair game.
My first two entries are of the Thylacine or Tasmanian Tiger. I may do another page before I send it off. We'll see.
