Burke Museum Paleo Day

Susan got us a day down in the bowels of the Burke Museum to sketch their paleo collection. Here's what I did.
Oreodont jaw in graphite

Macaque skull in graphite

Albertosaurus skull in ink

And here are some photos I took. It was such a cool day to see behind the scenes at the Burke. A little terrifying too to be near all those priceless items.
fossilized flower. So pretty.

Complete macaque skull. - Abe had to help me put the jaw on because I couldn't figure it out

Adorable slow loris posed skeleton. Saw it at Mammal Day later next to a similarly posed taxidermy slow loris

Teeth of something I wouldn't want to bite me
