Feeding the giraffes was a pretty tall order, but Sue was totally up for it!

Vintage Nina Art! I have no idea how old I was when I drew this (it recently turned up in some of my Grandma's things, so sweet that she kept it!), my best guess is elementary school because I remember going through a big phase where all I drew pigs all the time... This seems to be taking place at Perkins and clearly features my love for pancakes (and all things breakfast). The only thing that makes me feel sad when I see this is that the pig seems to have bacon and/or sausage on it's plate... Bon Appetit!

Zoo Haiku

Hello! I went out to the Como Zoo with a fine bunch of illustrators and writers last weekend to do a little sketching. This one was my favorite, and I wrote a tiny haiku to go with it (pardon my messy handwriting). Many thanks to the slow-moving tortoises who made this sketch possible (and to Alicia Schwab who organized the outing and inspired me to draw swirls on my tortoise shells).
