Illustration Friday- Safari

Here’s a mixed media piece for IF. Safari, I could only think of giraffes. I tried doing zebras, but the giraffes kept coming back.

I’m not sure if I love how it turned out. It needs work , or maybe I would do it differently. I like the giraffes, and I had an idea to draw them and cut them out on cool paper. But the painting over the background didn’t quite go as I planned.

Well, I’m learning to go with it lately.
