Mischief – word of the week

Illustration Friday‘s word of the week “mischief”.

What inspired me? Well, the weather & BIRDS!

Yes, I know, not a surprise that birds are involved, it’s the Chinook weather that brought out the choirs of birds; socializing and chatting, it’s like Spring in Calgary. The Chinook winds make sure that we keep our toques on, to keep the wind from whistling through our ears.

Watching the children play in the park with loosely fit clothing yet still wearing their toques and mitts made me smile as I listened to the music from the bird choir.


Birds are resourceful and are opportunists, even though they would never be this brave it is fun to imagine.


one parent wants to prepare for a new family and build a nest out of the new found material.


The other parent bird likes the Human fashion, birds can mimic and imitate us humans very well.


please feel free to comment on my pen and ink drawing.


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".

    I love the humour, birds with toques, or beanies, as we call them. 😄
