Tony Cockrell Card Collection
Each animal depicted on these cards are drawn from life, not from photos. When I set pen to paper it is a form of exploration, because the way takes no general course and the outcome has no guarantee. The final result may only be as scant as a few gestural lines or what you see on these cards. Lines are applied quickly, shadows recognized, direction of fur or feathers indicated so that my memory can fill in the details long after the animal has moved on.
