Get Portland all jumpy to go to the zoo

 

Watch 3 week old Visayan warty pigand listen to visitors reaction upon first sight

 

Here’s the pitch

A zoo in general can expect the number of visitors increase with the event of new born babies at their zoo.

Something to prepare your media spending for.

A limited time offer of family/group tickets at half the price will do. That will get the families all jumpy to get to the zoo and watch the new borns.

 


 

 

Short story on how we got there

I was in receipt of a tweet by daughter Liz the other day, with the repurposed tiger tweet pics you see here embedded. Elizabeth is an illustrator with a history of work shops. She is starting up an art school as a flying circus. Her idea of “Your place or mine” is determined on your place.

Don’t bring your brushes and tubes, I be right over.

We had been working on an extensive pitch presentation for the Munich zoo the previous year. And I had tortured my illustrator daughter with random demands and no cash to pay for the efforts.

The more the works advanced, the more obvious it became that it wasn’t visitor centered.

Instead I had it centered around the amazing architecture of the age old elefant house. The muslim architecture I was stuck on from childhood visits with my nanny. The elefant house in its amazing setting of old trees and nature left to its own along the Isar river. Wood, rocks, a forgotten world.

I watched a documentary film at the zoo. How a controlled explosion by a demolition company got rid of the muslim roof of the elefant house.

Bummer.
