Kids notice neat things

So, the other day while doing an illustration workshop with my daughter’s 5th grade class, we talked about animals in picture books. It was a lively and interesting discussion and one very bright young woman pointed out a lack of tapir’s in children’s picture books. To which I said – YES! and we all began drawing tapirs.

I’ve been drawing them ever since.
