African Inspiration – Zebra

Posted on June 5, 2011


A long time promise is kept. Remember my first African inspired creation – the Giraffe? See it here: African Inspiration – Giraffe.

Following the same principles and techniques, here is the sequel – the Zebra!

For this piece I also introduce the bottox!!! 🙂


The challenge was, as with the first one, researching the details of patterns and characteristics of this wonderful animal. In a matter of days I have learnt more than in school of from TV about it. Education is useless unless practicality is introduced.

I even managed to answer the zebra’s existential question: “Am I white with black stripes, or black with white stripes?” If you didn’t come to the same comclusion as I, write and I’ll explain! 🙂
