Let's Face It
I was inspired to draw Let's Face It after returning from a visit to a non-profit organization called Friends of the National Parks Foundation based in Borneo, Indonesia. Preserving orangutans and their habitat are FNPF's important work. I re-created this heartfelt moment, based on a photo taken by a staff member of the FNPF site in the Tanjung Puting National Park.
The innocence and curiosity from the baby orangutan tenderly reaching towards the human demonstrate the compassionate link between human and animal.
