Hoopoe

This bird is called a Hoopoe. Very neat looking with the head crest, but they don't live in Scotland or Canada so I haven't seen one in person.

Left Handed Sketch #86

I know I have drawn a toucan before, but I just really like them. don't make very good pets tho, can be pretty messy eaters.



One version of a finished monogram. I plan on using it on a new website design and maybe on new business cards but not 100% sure if I will use this or see what another version might look like. I wanted an old inked look to it, one that might be easy to carve if I want to make a stamp with it too.

Weekly Book Wrap Up

Still reading War and Peace lol Its taking a long time because I'm only reading it really when its nice outside and I can sit in the sun. Its a big bloody book but I am enjoying it.


 The Red Headed League (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, #2)The Red Headed League by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Better then the last story, not as predictable and a more interesting mystery. Very fast read, more info about the "bad guy" would have been nice tho. I will keep reading in the hopes of discovering why people like Holmes so much as a character, because besides the first novel, I can't figure out why.

Horse #1

I don't have a title for this and it is a long way from being finished, but I felt like drawing a horse.

Just going to keep the background simple like this and have the main focus be the horse, and I have no idea how long this is going to take me to finish, probably a long time.

Left Handed Sketches #81 and #82

The above bird is supposed to be a Gallinule, which I've never drawn before so looks a little odd lol


A Magpie for #82. I should have written down all of the birds I've drawn so far because I will probably end up drawing a few birds over again because I've forgotten which birds I've already drawn lol

Left Handed Sketch 79

Never heard of this pretty bird before, it is a Montezuma oropendola.

Really wanting to start etching some birds, but probably not a good idea but hopefully I can start an etching soon since I am going to go see some raptors in a few weeks and hopefully will get lots of pictures I can use.
