Gerald Durrell illustrations

preliminary sketches and drawings for the first new uni project
We have to come up with covers for three books by the same author as well a box slip thing for them. Really not sure what i'm going to do for the box.

 
I need another one involving him for Durrell's "The Bafut Beagles" but I haven't managed to read too much of it yet. I braved the Natural History Museum (i would normally have just gone to the nice quiet Grant Museum but they are shut while they move to a different location) in order to get the patterns and proportions of these animals right (as well as a giraffe and a gnu for the illustrations above but i haven't decided which i prefer yet) an then came home to finish them up.
