I’ve been outside drawing trees at some of the local parks lately. This one is actually a combination of a couple of tree sketches I made last week. This was made for the Illustration Friday topic “diary” and here I went with the stereotypical young girl writing under a tree. I will admit, I used to do some of my own writing in a journal for a while. I ultimately lost interest in this practice and quit. Soon after, I started getting back into drawing and sketching again. Now that I think of it, a sketchbook itself is a diary of sorts, where memories of what had been seen (or imagined) gets recorded in a journal. It’s funny ’cause it feels like I get to know the places and things I’ve drawn after observing something so closely after a while.

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.
