Mad Bird….image and Making-of FILM!

acrylic, artwork, bird, canvas, design, detail, drawing, graphic, illustration

I don’t know if you fellow artists (this includes musicians and writers and the jolly rest) and illustrators agree….my work seems to grow like a living being as I move along with drawing. Ernest Hemingway said that “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” I totally agree and find this little quote suitable for all creative outpourings somehow.

Here’s an illustration I did today. I took some images of the making-of process and only now, when editing them together and making a little film (Oscar nomination is guaranteed), did I notice the growing and organic quality the process has. Judge for yourselves & leave some comments!
