Drawing for research - MA illustration

Meg and Helene went on a trip the the Grant Museum of Zoology on Monday 9th Nov. 

Here's what Meg said about their research trip:

"I wanted to go as my project involves anatomical studies of creatures and collecting specimens and Helen needed to research the anatomy of wolves. It is a wonderful place filled with all manner of things in jars, skeletons, taxidermy and they actually get specimens out for you to draw close up (although it is best to ring before going to make sure they reserve a table for you). You are free to take photos so I ended up with about 150 pics.

We also popped along to The British Museum after as Helene needed some research of old garments for her character development (The last 3 photos are form there)."
