We were honored with a visit from artist Frank Pe, who stopped by the store before leaving the US. He was a guest at the recent Big Wow convention in San Jose -- and used some extra time in CA to see our local zoos and aquariums. Frank has seen most of the great zoos of the world -- and knows the names of most of the animals in English and German, as some of the best zoos are located where these languages are spoken! Who knew? It was delightful to show him our various animal art books in stock -- and to introduce him to animal artists he wasn't familiar with yet.
Frank's visit was yet another example of how the best artists are ALWAYS LEARNING -- and always drawing. You may feel you "can't draw" on some days -- but anyone can make the effort to learn more and draw more, and that's how you get better!
If you're a fan of animal art, we have a number of books available on this subject. Here's a link to more info on this particular book:
HERE' ARE PICTURES OF SNB DRAWING BOARD WITH FRANK PE SKETCH --
Aren't we lucky at SNB that many of our artist visitors leave a sketch on our drawing board! Frank added his big cat (Snow Leopard) right near Terryl Whitlatch's sketch of one of her favorite animals -- The White-Tailed Gnu (aka Black Wildebeest). All artist visitors from kids to pros have braved the board and left their drawing. Will YOU be next??
