From Montreal…

Man oh man. Where do I start?

Seriously, where’s a good place to start?

Museums, you say? The REDPATH MUSEUM, is it? Good idea.

Pretty cool place, this Redpath Museum. Recognize the name? Sugar? Tea? You got it. It’s a cool old building on the McGill campus that houses a collection of (well, everything, really… natural history, anthropolgy, geology. I think that covers everything, don’t you?) stuff amassed by the Redpath family. Or at least that’s my understanding of it, so don’t quote me. Anyway, drawings!

They weren't arranged like this, but I thought it was pretty cool that they had a dromaeosaur, an ostrich and a chicken skeleton. BIRDIE EVOLUTION!!

This was from a lot later in the month, but since we're on the subject... I thought a page crammed with Redpath stuff would be fun. Narwhal tusk? Ooooohhhh man. I also really liked the parrot on the left, can you tell?

That little parrot up there was apparently the only member of the parrot family to be native to North America. Cool, huh? But of course in true North American fashion, it is now extinct.

Great... Blue... Heron... I love them.

I drew this heron from a different angle on the page of sketches. I can’t get enough of these guys!!
