Big Cat Day

Once a semester the school host’s Big Cat Day, where the owners of one of San Francisco’s large cat preserves comes and brings big cats for us to draw. It’s pretty awesome. This semester they brought a cheetah (which is as tall as a shetland pony, those cats are HUGE), a lynx, and bobcat and a serval – a vicious little cat who would gladly bite the hand that feeds it. The baby bobcat moved around too much for me to get any decent drawings, but here are some fun life drawings of the other cats. The Cheetah:

The Lynx:

The tiny mighty Serval:
