Quick doodle, made up another bird. Who doesn’t love drawing with highlighters? Enjoy and see you next time!
For those of us that post our artwork online, sometimes it gets really difficult to post for the pure fear of someone stealing your artwork and claiming it to be their own. The more I venture into this illustrative world the harder everything becomes regarding posting. I know that you can copyright things but does that actually do anything, I mean once its on the internet I feel like it’s a free for all. Anyway, I was super happy with the way this image turned out. It started from a tiny sketch of a bird with garland and developed into this fun birthday piece. The colors really work for me here, they are bold and fun and I think would draw a kid right in. I mean think about it a little bird flying around your birthday party hanging decorations? I would lose my mind! Enjoy and see you next time!
A family friend joined us for dinner on Sunday evening. He has always supported my artwork and in turn I have always tried to make items that I know he would enjoy. I started the image earlier in the day, a simple Bluebird. They are such a cute little thing. Before last year I had never seen one but then on a mother daughter trip to the cape we had the opportunity to see the most bizarre Bluebird. He was obsessed with the car mirror. I couldn’t tell if he was defending his territory or attempting to woo a mate, granted the female and male do not look the same, or maybe he was just obsessed with his appearance who knows. Needless to say after days of this fellow consistently attempting to get into my side mirrors, my car was covered in poop. I guess it was worth it. Enjoy and see you next time!
These snow storms have forced my weekends to get divided into two categories; shoveling and painting. Alright, that may be a bit of an exaggeration but still I have had the opportunity to get some image done. The image below was absolutely not meant to be anything more than a sketch. I literally drew while making dinner hence the integration of cabbage and fry like shapes. Enjoy and see you next time.
I never thought I would like the end image but here we are again and I love the image I was supposed to cut up. In these last two images I seem to mindlessly move across the page and by the end it’s become a crazy collage of imagery and pattern. It’s exciting and rather stress free. I will say I had half painted the birds ages ago, but that’s why I thought it would be a scrap image. I hated the birds originally which was why I gave up and it just sat in my scraps pile for about 2 months. Anyway, enjoy and see you next time!

A few random bird sketches. These were never meant to be more than what they are but I was just messing around and decided birds would be the topic of choice for a few. In all fairness these are not super new, but summer has been so crazy busy and I haven’t had time to really dedicate any time to this page. I’m feeling rather inspired after finally completing one major summer project, a surprise 65th I hosted for my mom! It was lovely and she was completely taken by surprise, Ill add a link soon to see some of the details. Enjoy and see you next time!
