chimp Sketch of the week #13


This is a sketch of Jethro a chimpanzee that lives at Fauna Sanctuary outside Montreal Canada. this sketch was done while reading the book The Chimps of Fauna Sanctuary by Andrew Westoll this sketch is based on one of the photos in the book taken by Frank Noelker. While reading this book I was inspired to draw the chimps there will be more soon. To learn more about Jethro I recommend you buy the book here. This is a 5 minute preparation  sketch for a larger portrait I have planed.
