This little bird was created over the weekend and had a specific goal in mind. I submitted him for pocketful's illustration magazine. The theme for the magazine is "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!" which is where the clock like reference came into play around the edge.
I wasn't real sure I liked where he was going at first and had walked away from him for awhile, so much so that I was scrambling to finish him right up until the deadline...whew! Glad he finally came together.
He was created on a 8"x8" canvas with a collaged map using acrylics.
