Illustration Friday - Communication




There is something magical about animal communication. Sometimes, animals will get close and it appears as if they are whispering secrets to each other. Yet, the whole encounter is silent. They communicate with energy.

The reference to this photo was taken at a zoo, in the gorilla forest exhibit. I randomly was taking snapshots as the gorillas interacted and managed to capture this special moment. It seemed perfect for an illustration. It's 11 x 14" and drawn in pastel pencils. Enjoy!
