Watercolors and Pigma Micron pens in watercolor Moleskine

The Wood Stork (or Wood Ibis) has always been a favorite bird of mine, with its massive, five foot wingspan and its ancient, almost prehistoric appearance. This once-prosperous and abundant bird, who resides mostly in North America, is now endangered due to rapid habitat destruction. Researchers have now begun using satellite tracking to monitor the bird’s population and behavior.

I drew these for the Illustration Friday prompt, paisley. I thought about things in nature that resembled the paisley, and one of the first things that stood out in my mind was the seahorse, whose bodies seem to look like little living, breathing, floating paisleys. I may have also been somewhat influenced by watching some of the “Science is Fiction: 23 Films by Jean Painleve” DVDs, which is a truly fascinating, eye-opening series of short, nature films with a very surreal quality about them. The segments on seahorses, and octopi, alone is worth the watch. Definitely check this series out if you have a interest in nature and art.

He was reminiscent of a heavy set Conan O’Brien although a bit paler in the hair. His big brown and white jacket with the red stripe seemed to go on forever. I liked it though, it was fun- like color by numbers on the R back to BK.
