Slothify Yourself!

Draw yourself as a sloth with this simple sloth-drawing guide that I made!

As all my friends know, I’m very fond of sloths indeed. I recently met some wonderful sloths in Costa Rica and Panama (shout-outs to little Sammie and Dahabie at Casa Mariposa in El Valle!)… I even held a friendly sloth- Sammie, was licked by Millie, high-threed Buttercup, witnessed an unrequited sloth bromance in Cahuita National Park, and saw Sammie poo while hugging a tree (rare and beautiful occasion). Fascinating creatures! Upon my return I’ve been filling my sketchbooks with all things bradypus so if you dislike the creatures you may wish to unfollow me now!

If you draw yourself slothy using my guide, I’d love to see the results so please post pics or link to pics in the comments section.

Casa Mariposa

Above is me having a hug with a rescue sloth Sammie from the lovely Casa Mariposa hotel in Panama.

Below is a photo from the day I visited the Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica, when I met the famous bradypus (3-toed) Buttercup!

Here is the first time I ever touched a sloth, can you tell from the excitement written all over my face? This is Millie, a choloepus (2-toed) sloth. She was the little bugger that licked my hand!

I could go on all day, so I’ll save some pictures for another post!
