Here's my entry for the challenge yourself. I've never been a fan or considered myself that proficient at drawing animals, but my friend asked me to draw a picture of birds for one of her students. Feather patterns are wicked difficult, that is all.

Also, both Bill and Chuck have emailed me to remind me of the MFA Illustration show up until next friday. Chuck also has invited any of the illustration majors to visit the MFA students and the guest artists this and next week in the studio space. I'm probably going to head up there next week sometime.

And for those of you who are looking for a quick and easy professional looking portfolio site, deviantART has launched nice ones. Probably the best thing about them is that they have no inherent connection to their regular site. You still have to sign up for deviantART which is free, but there is also a premium membership portfolio deal that allows you to pick your own domain name or import one in. The sites are really nice, especially for something that's free or $30 a year for premium. Here's an example of mine if you're interested.


  1. this illustration makes me happy. :)

  2. Michael, your link doesn't work. :(

    And I think that bird needs a nice French hood.
