Parts 2 & 3

It took me 15 minutes just to color the birdie
so I divided the video in two parts.
Next video will show the detailing of the feathers with acrylic ink.
More information on the materials I used to make this can be found here.

Me on video Part One

Part 1 of the video I filmed today
coloring the background of the flying birdie.
The next installment will be the actual coloring of the bird.
And finally a Part 3 with the detailing with white acrylic ink.
Music: "The Fisherman" by Leo Kottke & "Beyond this Moment" by Patrick O'Hearn
Hope you enjoy!

This little birdie is my current project. I'm thinking of filming myself
putting some color on it tomorrow if there is good light.

WOW! Thank you so much
for participating in this giveaway
and for all the nice comments!!!
I had a wonderful time reading all of them.

The winner is:
from Thessaloniki, Greece!

Please email me with you mailing address.

The illustration above was made
using some of my own
hand carved eraser stamps.
If you can't find the big carving blocks
where you live don't fret,
there are many things you can do
with small erasers!

Monday morning

All I did this morning (besides feeding my family)
was re-pot two of my plants, answer some emails,
play with Turbo & procrastinate
like it's nobody's business.
Now...time to work!
Today's Garfield strip sums it up perfectly
and I had to share it with you :)
Hope you have a fruitful Monday!

This only happens a couple of times a year.
I must just go with the flow
& hope to be back to my creative self soon :)
In the mean time I wanted to show you
these really cool painted wood "g" and "Z" letters
I got during our trip to San Miguel.
That turquoise fan has been
a life saver!
