Let's continue on this journey back in time, shall we? Yet more artwork from years ago (I guess I'd better get to drawing NEW stuff soon...)
In the eighties and early nineties I was asked to serve on the Board of Directors at our local zoo. Well, I was quite honored and worked there in my spare time for a few years, until I had my daughter. I got behind-the-scenes tours, special up close "meet and greets" and developed a whole new appreciation for the facility.
My most prized contribution was the running of the Animal Adoption program. We brought in thousands of dollars to the Zoo, and I had the pleasure of doing promotional artwork for it too. The item above was a decal we handed out. I also did drawings of many of the adopted animals, but so far I can't find any left... Oh well, but it sure was a great feeling to be in charge of such a successful program to help the Zoo and its inhabitants.
