You also might know of my fondness for antique maps, and after years of looking, I have finally acquired a map of my beloved. So the first subject just had to be my newest acquaintance, the alligator I met not too long ago.
I wanted this drawing to be soft and non-threatening, just as he was the day we first met. Alligators get a bad rap as do many of the other animals I love. So I have rendered this drawing in pencil and neutral colored pencils. The pencil and brush addition on the bottom left of the finished drawing is simply an acknowledgement of my addiction to this enchanting wonderland. Alice would so love this place.
