Week 39 WORDS

This week’s theme in the 52 Week Illustration Challenge first spawned a parliament of owls.

my first owl drawing and the one I don’t like. Yick!

o is for owl judywatsonart lores

I like this one, even though he is rather serious. His O needs kerning.

Barn Owl judywatsonart lores

I like this rough, painterly owl. The lettering is awful. Just a bit TOO careless.

This doodle didn’t even get any words added

It was getting late, but then I just had to do this dog and he was very quick.

Finally, I went to bed. But I wasn’t finished with doodling, so I took my pen and a bit of paper. Total inanity prevailed.

A Field Guide to Birds of the Universe

I finished a spread for Thunder today, so it was fun to sit down this evening and splash around some watercolour paint to create a cheerful parrot (not of this world) and put him onto a book cover for the 52 Week Illustration Challenge. The theme this week is BOOK COVER. It’s a subject close to my heart, and normally I would spend longer than this on it… lovingly tweaking and twiddling each letter and feather. But a quick job is a good job until I am up-to-date in all areas. So here it is.
