I love this bird. He has the craziest big ass bill. I drew another one in January. When I found this one, I felt like I had hit the freaky-looking bird jackpot.

Hey, old man bird.

Colored pencil on this one. The background is pretty busy, and this one didn’t work as well as others with the re-purposed drawing. But it’s OK. I think his wary eye saves it. Like he’s wondering why that skeleton man is going to touch him. Oh no, skeleton man. You will not touch me.
