Its summer break for those like me who still have school of some kind but I need a break from this 'break'. I have a fulltime job for the summer that pays like a part time and it leaves me exhausted every day working with kids and animals for 6 hours straight let alone other stuff to do.
I tried to do different and new things with my art and it hasn't had great results so Im pretty bummed with it and frustrated so I kinda am taking a breather from it before I dive back into it. In the mean time, Im working on my online shark class.
So a few fun facts about sharks:
Their reproductive organs are near/ between their shoulders @.@
A shark's heart is only two chambers while ours has 4.
Not really a shark fact but while calculating the relative speed of different chondrichthyans and other fish by size, it turns out a goldfish swims faster then micheal phelps- again, once you calculate with the difference of body size
To eliminate osmosis, the inside fluids of a shark is actually saltier then the enviroment/ ocean.
My summer job is at a zoo and Ive been trying to do daily sketches of the animals there. The eventual goal is to draw all the animals there though I think that wont be possible for a few logistical reasons. (for example, I cant draw the jumping rat if all i see is its shadow in the nocturnal hall)
Maybe Ill post some of those as a tokota break.
In other news, my last ferret had be put down which was really hard to do so with that plus the added stress of work and recent frustration of my art results- I need a break from this break!
What are you guys doing for the summer? Hows your break going? Do you need a breaks break? Any ideas you wanna share?
What should I be for Halloween this year? Yo, its never too early to start preparing for halloween haha
