A little birdy told me





Was doing some quick sketching today... Man, I am rust- EE! Starting out with birds was fun though, nice, clear, simple shapes. There's an endless variety and they are SO easy to caricature. FUN! I think I am gonna take a few of these further into the design realm. Enjoy!

He's back. Cool stuff! I like the bird on bottom middle on the page before the owl. Be cool to see him developed further.

Fantastic bird studies Matt! Really nice shapes and birdy poses, that puffed-up bird on the second page is awesome :)

Nice.. I love how simple the shapes are, but still so appealing!

Lampshade: I'm back!.... I hope :) Thanks man, that was one of my fav's too!
Steve: thanks bro--
Andy: Awww shucks- thanks man, it's been humbling getting back into it.
Richard: Thanks! Yeah, the simple shapes make it so easy to caricature.
Marcos: Amen! I am still learning that day by day!

Nice. I actually always have trouble drawing birds, I have a tough time seeing the gesture in them, and they always end up stuff. These are great, though, man. Matt Nolte introduced me to the harpy eagle. It's like the great white of the avian world, check it out.

Austin: Yeah, i know EXACTLY what you mean about trouble seeing the gesture. Unless they are flying, landing or taking off they don't have a ton of poses. If i could draw like Matt Nolte though these drawings would be in a heckuva lot better shape!
I'll never forget Matt's california condor story with Paul Lindsley... crazee!

These diffraction data are then treated with an algorithm conceived by the Swiss team. Stereoscope - this microscope allows for binocular (two eyes) viewing of larger specimens.
