A group of us were at Lincoln Park Zoo this afternoon sketching animals. I was sketching a very large gorilla a few feet away on the other side of the glass. She turned her head and looked at me sketching her. Then she turned around and sat right in front of me, head resting in her hands, staring at me through the glass, perfectly still. Soon, the rest of our sketch group gathered around and we attracted a crowd. Only the gorilla's eyes moved as a crowd quickly formed around us. It was soooo cool! Unfortunately, I get nervous when people are around me when I'm trying to draw, so this is all I got before she left.
We're probably going back to the zoo next Friday if anyone's interested. Though, I can't promise I can make a gorilla pose like that again. Sorry! ;)
