Birds

Birds, birds, birds, my words fly like birds, my birds fly like words.

I always seem to be drawing birds.

This is a little more the fine art arm of my work, as I’ve exhibited my bird paintings as an artist (at Webbs Gallery, Northcote Road,  The Common Ground coffee shop, The Mill House, Windsor, Fragments) and also sell bird themed paintings at Artfinder, but my avian obsession of course spills over into my illustration work, both personal and commercial. Three of my illustrated books have been themed in part on birds. The original Magpies book of short stories being one, and a compilation of the ongoing series recently recommissioned What Birds are Really Thinking being another. When I designed the illustrated guide to using the internet for art teachers for the Institute of Education (Whose Afraid of The Big Bad Web), I used bird headed anthropomorphic characters. When I doodle in margins I tend to draw birds as well, often seagulls.

So, an obsession? Perhaps. A speciality? Definitely.
