Mammal sketches in black & white

After a long period time of sketching and illustrating
almost solely birds or trees, I went back to my beloved
mammals with their exceptional facial expressions
and I didn't regret it...

New field studies

It is true that I've been very quiet lately...
It was because of the tight deadlines I had to catch up with,
while doing illustrations..
The German Bird atlas has been finished now, and during a visit
to my Parents in low in Saxony , I used the limited time I had to
recover and to do some field work..
(All the attached studies have been done on location in Saxony with the exception
of the Cormorant's head done in Munich zoo last week)















Great Cormorant head study

















White Stork head study















Common Rudd





















Red Kite
















European ground squirrel
