Black Bird

Once I had finished my Christmas orders I put the colour pencils down for a while and reverted back to black on white.  I though about some simple designs that don't to hours to do, just for the fun of it......but with all things I do lately I got caught up in the detail and how much of it I could fit into each drawing.  I must say that I am really happy with the results and my brain is just buzzing with where I can take it from here... 


This was the first drawing that stated out so simple and then took on a life of its own.

 And then of course, because I enjoyed making the first one so much I just had to keep going.  This is the start of the second bird I did.  I really like the tail on this one. 

Once the outlines were done it was the onto all of the details in the flowers.  I used a 0.2 fine line marker.

The bird's body is a series of dashes and the wing is a multi layered flower.

And this is the finished LOVE BIRD.  I am hoping to have it available on a t-shirt in the not too distant future.  I am thinking maybe flowered elephants next...any other suggestions?
