Christmas in Belize!

This Christmas we were very fortunate to have my parents take our immediate family to Belize for the holiday. I was a bit absent from social media and the blog the last couple of weeks while getting work finished up and prepping for the trip. It was a wonderful vacation and a beautiful country. We saw howler monkeys (video below), snorkeled with rays and sharks, and had our first taste of barracuda.

Here are some sketches I did on the trip.

And, just for fun, some video of a howler monkey at the Community Baboon Sanctuary in Belize. Keep in mind, these are wild monkeys. They aren’t cared for other than the land being protected.

I’m not sure why the video isn’t working in the post, but if you can’t see it click on the hyperlink above.

 

Happy Fourth of July!

In honor of the Fourth of July, I thought I would post some beach sketches I did while we were visiting family in New York. Things have been a little hectic lately between moving and traveling. I’ve also been working on a lot of things that I can’t show you just yet so I apologize for the lack of new work.
