Safe


Its another bird in a hat! Surprise! This was scribbled super quickly, so its a bit rough around the edges and the magpie has a head that looks more like a duck's. I suppose I should think about some sort of direction as to where I should go with my increasing collection of birds, but for now I'm just enjoying the fun of it.

Its September, its colder, its darker and as my wardrobe mostly consists of scarf and cardigan I thought I'd try my hand at knitting. So far I'm doing pretty well and hopefully I'll have a lovely long dark green scarf to swish about in about a week. Yay!

Finally, there is the Forgotten Sausage. If you would like to listen to songs about sausages and maybe submit your own (again, just for fun) then check out the bloomin' hilarious

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my hummingbirds this week. Your take on the theme is really clever! You mention how you scribbled super quickly, but I love the effect. I also like your color choice. Nice job!

    I like the colours you use, the limited pallette on each bird illustation gives them a kind of sophistication even though they are very silly too!!
    Looking forward to more...

    If you only have scarbes and cardies, how to you cover your bum?

    You draw very well. You can always tell when someone draws well when you can look at their graphite work.

    I can just see this picture in a children's book for small criminals. "Momma bird was on a heist. See how neatly she cleaned out the safe." I love it.

    This is the best bird so far, the ruoughness and rushed teqnique make it more unique. It does not look rushed, the effect gives it a vintage look.

    I think when your boyfriend said bird's in hats, he meant women in hats. But you got the wrong end of the stick and now he doesnt have the heart to tell you.
