Bestiary Class

I'm taking a class at  the art space called The Observatory Room in the Gowanus area of Brooklyn.  There you will find  the Morbid Anatomy Library which is a fun place to look at a lot of strange and interesting things. The class is called drawing from the bestiary and it's run by the artist Saul Chernick who does a lot of great paintings  in a fascinating style.  I chose to do a bat and the first assignment was to create the bat's skeleton using bristol board and these teeny tiny paper brads, so that the joints can actually move. Here it is. Now I'll be on to step 2, making an actual drawing of the bat.  Toying with some   ideas.
