Started on the crest today, need to darken the base to make it stand out a bit more. All the wrinkles on his neck are going to drive me insane. If its not  loads of feathers to etch, its lots of wrinkles to drive me crazy :p

This doesn't quite fit on my scanner, so bigger than A3 by about half an inch. I need more plexi-glass now and really have to start building a press before I get buried in etching plates.

Bird Update

Well a small update, he has an ear now :p Some people have guessed this could be a peacock, but its going to be a Cassowary. This one at Edinburgh Zoo did not like me at all, followed me up and down the fence giving me the evil eye :p

Canadian Word of the Week

This weeks word :)

Big Bird

Bit more done on the bird. As to what it will be, think big and blue :)

Happy Birthday!

To John :)

The Lab is Molly, 14 and every time she sees John she rushes, (well tries to rush) over to John so she can get a scratch. The other day John was sitting on the grass and she climbed into his lap, and of course I didn't have my camera.

Book Cover Idea

Messing around in Illustrator, made a simple book cover for my favourite book, (minus the fuzzydragons tag of course). Its not my favourite book because of the violence, but the message in it. I do think everyone should try to read it, some people find the language hard to grasp but it is worth a read.

And if you haven't read or seen the movie (didn't care for the movie compared to the book, I did feel like it glorified the violence, but that's my opinion), you probably wont get the milk reference but I liked the action of the milk and how it looked after I turned it into a vector image :)

I guess you could call this fan art :)

Throwback Thursday

John and his dad. Love the wallpaper :) unless it is that wallpaper that is like foam/water proof, that stuff is a pain to get off the wall.
