It flies by Zindy It flies by Zindy
This drawing started as a representation of my new direction in life. I recently started school to become an animal caretaker (zookeeper). I've always loved animals and I have been thinking about changing careers for a couple of years now.
It's been hard going back to school again and learning. I've been working as an independent artists for so many years now and am so used to being my own boss. I love school though, it's really really great. A lot of the classes are very interesting and I enjoy all the new information.

The drawing is partly letting go of some of the things I have inside, some of the darker things I've been through, changing my life, hopefully for the better. Even if I decide to go back to art full time, going back to school has been a positive change for me. I try to put in some drawing in the weekends and whenever I have some extra time in the evenings though homework is taking most of my free time.

Finally this drawing is an entry to the wonderful Jessica :iconfaestock: contest.
I am glad to finally enter one of her contests as her stock has been a great inspiration for me for many years now. She does an amazing job with her stock.
Edit: Unfortunately I was half a day too late with my entry. However, I still loved drawing this. Oh well :D

Have a fantastic weekend :heart:

This is such a magnicent piece that has so much personal meaning to it. There is so much attention to detail on the bird it's incredible. I wish you the best of luck with your new career and am slightly jealous. My second love in life after art is animals also and the zoo is one of my favorite places to be. I think people are getting tired of me begging to go:D I very much look forward to hearing more about your life as a zookeeper in the future.
