Fancy That Flamingo Print

One of my favorite animals, well, bird really, is the flamingo. They are super fun birds - sort of exotic and fancy and funny all at the same time.  I decided to create an art print using the flamingo and the phrase "fancy that".

This was my brainstorm list:

I always associate flamingos with Florida, especially vintage postcard Florida with lots of palm trees, orange groves, kitschy motels, tropical pinks, aquas, greens, ocean blues, etc.   These old motel and theatre signs inspired the lettering and color scheme:

and some flamingos that helped with the color scheme and bird sketching:

This is my more detailed rough sketch.  I had a pretty solid idea of how I envisioned this project before I started sketching so I decided to just go with what I knew I wanted to do:

The final product!

I am pretty happy with how this project turned out!  Though I've been drawing and doodling since I was a kid, I am learning my way around Illustrator and finishing my art digitally for the first time.  I am always open to any constructive critiques or suggestions you may have.  

Cheers,

Jess
