Throwback Thursday Art

More work from 2000. This is from way before I started drawing birds all the time :p Not bad tho for a sketch :) Really need to start sketching more with pencils again. Use pens all the time but I forgot how much I like this look for sketches.

And a camel. I think I was trying to figure out how to shade with different patterns, or it started off as a doodle and then went a bit too far :p

Hi Jennifer,
The sketch is seriously good. I never expected to see a personality so clearly evident in a sketch.
Do you enter your work in any wildlife or bird art exhibitions, contests or national or international competitions? While claiming no expertise in the field of wildlife art, I nevertheless believe your work exhibits exceptional accuracy, beauty and technical skill.
I'd say more, but knowing you as I do, you're probably laughing at my praise and hurting your jaw in the process. It's just that I've never seen such beautiful art works dedicated to birds and find it hard to believe that you're not only famous, but very wealthy, too.
I certainly hope you are entering every contest out there. I'd think any-and-all wildlife publications would be beating a path to your door.
I'll stop now, so your head doesn't explode!
Have a nice Friday.

hi Gary, yep laughing, and thank you for the praise its very nice to read and makes a person see that what they are doing is not pointless :)

nope havent entered any competitions,no money to really. after you get a print framed (even tho one of the local framers will try to frame/matt things for me as cheap as possible), and then often entry cost, and shipping if you do get to the hung/award stage its a little over the budget unfortunately lol the costs of entering comps add up

would love to and might next year after I save up for UK citizenship, which is not cheap, but yay for student loans :p

thank you very much again :)
