Nature, as it is. This is a collection of sketches of animals being as they are, as they have always been. These poses are as real as they can get, for animals are quite honestly, candid. They have no need to be more than what they are or do more than what they are meant to do. We do little to appreciate such honesty, and littler still to appreciate these creatures. We lose one more of them every second, but here they remain for you to see. Here’s to hoping that they won’t just be on paper and canvas. Here’s to hoping that Nature pulls through to see many more sunrises and sunsets.
