Busy & Enjoyable Weekend

This sketch of an Ethiopian Wolf is based on an Anup Shah photo that appeared in the article "Wolves of Ethiopia" in the March 2006 issue of National Geographic. At the time of the articles release, there were "roughly 600" of these wolves in the world, a quick Google search brought up a population count of about 440 in 2009—sorry didn't write down the source.

Staying on a theme (quite unintentionally, I assure you) I went to see The Wolfman in the afternoon. Did a quick and dirty moly sketch of a couple of fellow theater goers.

Saturday night, I enjoyed the Valentine's Day concert given by the Kenosha Symphony Orchestra with the extremely talented guest pianist Fumi Nishikiori.

Have also been enjoying the winter Olympics!

Nan, such an interesting life you lead. I love that wolf, looks more like a fox though, but I love it. Sad about the dwindling numbers. Times is tough.

Thanks! It has its moments, and then it has long moments of navel gazing too :-D

They do actually look more like foxes or, more accurately, a mix between a fox and a wolf.
