Alpaca

Inspiration! Or . . . tweetspiration! (badum'ch)

I'm actually astounded by what an amazing source of information Twitter has been in this catastrophe. I'd created a twitter account a while ago but had always wondered what it was really good for (aside from reading ConanOBrien, StephenAtHome, and grantimahara tweets)---now I know. Internets, you never cease to amaze me.

Anyway. On a much less serious note, my friend Eri tweeted about having a dream about an alpaca. Not just a regular alpaca, but a furious, horned alpaca with rainbow fur. Freaking trippy. I had to draw it.
I've also learned that alpacas are very hard to draw. It took me five tries just to get it right . . . kind of.

But yes. Thanks Eri for getting me back into the swing of things. I've been doing a lot of still life drawings for my portfolio (which has been somewhat depressing and frustrating), but cartoons is what I enjoy and do best!
