A Bird In the Hand…

…is worth a bird in the belly! Of course I’m kidding. I’m sure this bear and bird are the best of pals.

I recently did a little drawing of a bear for a friend, and was pleased with the result. Thought I’d do one for myself this past weekend.

For those of you curious about the method of execution, I used a black brush pen on bumpy watercolor paper with some watercolor paint thrown on for good measure. Keeping it all loose makes it feel a bit energetic and whimsical, don’t you think?

It’s as if two buddies are catching up on old times. So long as the bigger of the buddies doesn’t end the conversation by eating his pal.
