WORK – Illustration Friday

September 4, 2015  ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY


Working Birds building a home.

Working Birds building a home.



You’ve heard of the term “worker Bee” but have ever observed birds building a nest? They work!

Birds will work in teams and build multiple homes in a short period of time, their nests are amazingly strong because of the intricate design and use of materials. They build multiple nests for the same reason humans look at many home before deciding which one to buy; is it in a friendly neighbourhood, are there grocery stores near by, safety and so on.

My submission for the WORK theme is based on my studies of birds and their movements, they use their feet and beaks to manipulate small objects, they communicate in a quiet yet efficient way.

Comments are welcome.


About artist and illustrator

I'm a textile artist, resourceful and excited about making things. Dog walks with my pooch "Charlie" is inspiring and an opportunity to develop ideas from nature and people whom we meet on our strolls. There is a story behind my art making, it's in the series, I don't make just one but many from the same idea, but! not one will look like the other, each piece of art is "one-of-a-kind".
