Today was Big Cats day at the Academy of Art's fabled Bradley Hall. What fun!
The cheetah pretty much stole the show. Amazing proportions, very mellow, and purring constantly the whole time we were drawing.
The caracal turned out to have a serious fetish for the rough carpet covering the model stand, and spent most of its time rolling around on its tummy in a state of feline bliss.
The Siberian bobcat was awful cute. Just a big fluffy kitten, panting because of the unaccustomed heat and, according to its handler, because it was excited.
And finally the serval, apparently a champion mouser.
