Illustration of alligator and great blue heron
The Illustration Friday theme this week is “Swamp” – which is perfect, since not only am I swamped(!) at the moment, but I’ve been wanting to draw a cute alligator (or crocodile? I confess I can’t tell them apart) for a while now. He’s sitting on top of a page from “Contributions to the natural history of the alligator” by Bennet Dowler, a great old 1846 book digitized by Google, which I distressed and doodled on.
