Zebra Crossing

Remember this old riddle: What's black and white and red all over? The answer would be this drawing!

I like the companionable looking pose of these two zebras. Two zebras stand with one resting its head on the back of the other. They are drawn in graphite pencil. marker pen completes the brilliant red sky and yellow grass that form their background. I used Prismacolor markers, so the colors should be durable.

The most astounding view of zebra I've ever seen was among the cattle at Hearst Ranch at San Simeon, California. These remnants of the zoo that William Randolph Hearst kept as his San Simeon "castle" are a delightful surprise for the lucky traveler on HIghway One, the narrow road that follows the Pacific coastline.

I'm keeping this one on hold until after a competitive show in July, then making itavailable.
