Hello All! I will be brief; just writing to show I did two pieces for this week's "Creative Tuesdays." I did one looser and free-er sketch that is somewhat downbeat in nature. And I took one happy card I'd done with bird-cages, and turned it into a graphic pattern.
Above, is my first, looser sketch. Called "Freelance hourly bird," this little birdy is dreaming of going outside, but even in the bird economy he works by the hour, is up late working on the computer with coffee, and very much stuck inside his birdcage if he wants to be able to earn enough to finally leave his nest and get himself some birdie seed.
And on a cheerier note, is the pattern I created out of an old Channukah card! The girl is feeding seasonal cookies to her rooster and chicken friends, and some of them are in pens/the chicken version of a birdcage. I digitally cut out the image, repeated it, and included a border with hearts and the Star of David. As you can see, these little birdies and the human are happier, more upbeat, and less reliant on caffeine than the first birdie in a cage that I sketched for this challenge.
Thanks to everyone for taking a look! I am very swamped like now like my little bird drawn in the first brush-penned image, but I am looking forward to viewing everyone's lovely pieces when things calm down.
