The Orlando Science Center

I was at the Orlando Science Center for Otronicon. Otronicon, is a video game enthusiasts dream come true, was spread out throughout the museum including the dinosaur room. As soon as I entered I knew I has to draw the Tyrannosaurus Rex. He looked angry, like he wanted to devour every video game geek in the room. To the left in the sketch children work in a sand box where they can uncover fossils. Clustered under the fossilized fish a crowd had gathered to watch a large screen TV which was blasting a guitar hero performance. There was a constant stream of people coming and going.
As I was working, a little girl approached me and was transfixed by what I was doing. She left and came back several times and finally asked if she could take a picture of my drawing to show her mom. I said it was fine. Then she took several steps back and took a picture of me as I worked. I like the fact that she is taking time to document the moments of her museum experience. I hope she continues to be fascinated by the infinite universe and ever changing world around her.
