As some of you may have heard, the tortoise Lonesome George died a week ago. He was the last of the Galapagos tortoises from Pinta Island. He was estimated to be over 100 years old, which is actually only middle-aged for his kind of tortoise. Maybe he really was lonely.
As a quick warm-up before moving on to a more complicated piece, I did a portrait of Lonesome George.
I hope you aren’t as lonely in the afterlife, buddy.
