The birds and the bunnies

I've spent most of last week in Norwich, at the University of East Anglia, doing a work placement at the BA Festival of Science. It was a great experience (even met some people doing sci-art) but we were kept very busy and I wasn't left with much time to do any drawing. I did though manage to take some photos, and use them as reference to do today's sketches.



The campus was completely overrun with bunnies. And they were really docile too. You could get almost close enough to pick them up - although no one did as the rumour was that they all had myxomatosis (viral disease that causes blindness and eventual death). Also on campus as part of the Festival were a bird-of-prey show. They had the most GORGEOUS American bald eagle that everyone was swooning over, and also a falcon, snowy owl, kestrel and vulture. I was told though that they had a bunny casualty on the first day they had the birds round - and the bunnies were much harder to spot the rest of the week!
