Introducing THE ANIMAL/ ZANIMAL Collection
The character Oddvark grew out of this collection. He is the aardvark with the weird characteristics that make him a ZANIMAL. There are many more to follow: the Manatee/Manateehee, the Polar Bear/Molar Bear - to name a few. These characters were used in a summer drawing class for kids - I talked to them about realistic drawing - "seeing" what is in front of you and drawing it as best as you can, and "imagination" drawing - drawing from your symbol systems or imaginative mind. Much of this was based upon the theories put forth in Betty Edward's book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.
