Blue Bird of Paradise

Blue Bird of Paradise.  Crayon and Photoshop.  Been trying a new(ish) style today which feels like it's going somewhere.  There's still a lot of progress that needs to be made but for once I actually enjoy both the process and the final result.  The image itself is inspired by Charley Harper and all those wonderful ornithological illustrations you find in old text books.

*EDIT* You can now get this print  (or t-shirt if you prefer) online at Society 6!


  1. Looks great! While searching today came across an Illustrator called Brendan Wenzel, who works in a similar way to Charley Harper, except the characters have brilliant expressions :) check his stuff out-

  2. Thanks Natasha! I just had a look and I really like his stuff, the animals look mostly bewildered but are full of life, thanks for sending the link :)
