Back at the Zoo Again...



















I love Tigers, i can sit there and just watch them for hours. Beautiful creatures with so much pride and dignity. I was able to catch a young one who was watching me draw. I think he was a bit of a show off.
As for the penguins, they are soooo funny. So unbelievably animated in every thing they do. They waddle and dance around, so happy and oblivious to everything else around them..... kinda like me! Hee hee!

Tori: Really love that cat. You caught him in mid stare - holding himself up for a moment before laying back down. Very nice. Thanks for sharing. Love those big mitts of his. -- Mykal

Tori, you are amazing! I am so jealous (just kidding) as to how you incorporate such feeling, action and emotion in your work. I just visited some of your work sites and your work is a delight and you are an inspiration! thanks

Hey Tori
You've got some great work here. I remember seeing and admiring your bgs for Fav when in 1st year. However, what's not so good is your CV-noticed you slightly misspelt Nickelodeon, tut.

Hi Tori, I just started working in a new sequence for Rio, here at Bluesky and I found some of your favela designs on the reference folder.
They look amazing. Great inspiration for the camera action.
I hope I will have some time soon to visit the old gang from Uli's in London. Maybe we can meet if you are around.
Take care.
