For 2015, I'm jumping into another weekly illustration project: birds! Going off my success with my 52 dogs project from last year, I'm sticking with similar principles for this one. Mainly that I wanted I subject matter I'm already curious about/interested in, and that I wanted something that would push me to hone my skills in creating simple illustrations.
Simplicity, you guys, it's tricky and it takes practice, at least for me. But I truly enjoy making these simple little pieces of art that can breathe and be light. It's a whole thing for me these days.
Here's my first bird illustration of 2015!
He's a vermilion flycatcher. Apparently when he's trying to garner the attention of a special lady friend, he presents her with a butterfly or another showy sort of insect. Isn't he just the charming fellow?
