Drawings: Columbus Zoo

More from my continuing series of illustrations:

A few years ago the Columbus Zoo was referred to me and I made several drawings to show the idea of using food and gift item carts at several locations on the zoo grounds. This particular illustration (pen, color pencils and pastel on paper) depicts a specific location at the zoo.

When I do color illustrations I am conscious to represent color from across the spectrum in a way that looks natural and organic. Depicting human figures as I did here presents the opportunity to introduce spots of bright color.

To help you prepare for your next modern building project I have a written an educational piece entitled “12 Questions to Ask When Hiring a Contractor”. In my experience better contractor selections are made and unpleasant surprises are more likely avoided by asking the right questions up-front. Just reply to this “Questions 4 Contractors” in the subject line and I will forward to you!
