365 Doodles - Day 244

More sketchpaddiness ... but with a theme today. When my grandkids were staying recently, they were always asking me to draw stuff. I responded by getting them to draw stuff for me - it's a great way to encourage them. Then I (foolishly) claimed that I could probably draw most types of animals from memory. The kids' response was to shout out the names of every animal they'd ever heard of in the expectation that I could doodle them. I just about managed to keep up and here's one of the pages that resulted:

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised that they knew what a platypus and an echidna are.

Go kids!
