Here is a drawing I did this time of year at the Bronx Zoo in NY. It is an incredible place and a real escape from the city. These wild dogs really made an impression on me. Though I was fortunate to have the opportunity to experience them, I do wish they were running free.

Yes Greg, it would be nice if they were running free – just not in my neighborhood, please! Love the movement in this.
Despite the context being a contradiction I think there’s a great sense of freedom in this one, what a great capture (again no pun intended).
greg, i love those dogs, too, they are my favorite thing in that zoo, i even have the stuffed animal version!!! 🙂 have you ever seen them taking a nap piled high one on top of the other? 🙂 and your drawing captures their spirit 🙂 beautiful!
