Imaginary Animals (2)

I´ve been working my way slowly through the Drawing Lab book by Carla Sonheim. A great book! One of the exercises is to illustrate books or stories, which inspired me to start my Matching Sock blog. Another exercise is to draw imaginary animals from doodles. I´m quite keen to do this, but I sort of want to draw unreal fantasy animals, rather than drawing on my knowledge of real animals. While at the beach I noticed that a lot of driftwood is quite strangely shaped, some like quite fantastical animals. You can´t quite see the whole piece in the photo above - but a very weird piece of driftwood! Or is it driftwood...
