13th November 2016: Breaks, books and drawing

On my blogging break , my favourite book and drawing skeletons


I have returned after a week’s break from blogging as last week was tremendously busy! I volunteered to be on a team for a RAG month charity racquet tournament and spent my free time praticing sports such as tennis, table tennis, squash and badminton. I won 3/4 matches (I lost squash by two points, so I’m happy with that!) so it looks to have paid off!

My phone which also broke just before I started blogging,  has now returned from being repaired so I can take more, better quality pictures.

Now, to this blog’s topic which I decided to be about my favourite book: Evolution in Action, by Jean-Baptiste de Panafieu (and photographer Patrick Gries). It is a book compromised of mainly stunning black and white photographs of skeletons and skulls of a huge variety of different animals, and the text focuses on evolution and comparative anatomy. It makes me want to write my own book (which I may try and begin planning at some point).

One of the best things about this book for me is the subjects it gives me for drawing; the black and white pictures are so clear-cut and defined, I just want to try and draw all of them! It is like getting a glimpse into a range of European museums, not only what would be open to the public but also behind-the-scenes!
