More Color Birdz

More Color Birdz - student project

In 2017 I started a challenge halfway through a broader challenge, this time called #42colorbirdz. My super-supportive Instagram followers seemed to love all the birds (though I'm always afraid of clogging my feed with redundant subject matter)!

There were 42 birds--each showcasing a color from Dr Ph Martin's paints sets A, B, and C. Once I was finished, it was compiled into a book with color swatches on the left. Dr Ph Martin's folks were very excited and will be lining it up within their resale inventory.

The also sent some gifts... including Set D! I didn't realize there was one more set. And so, I challenged myself to create a bird for each of those paints, 14 more!

(Lots of inks, too, which are not my strength but free art supplies?? Heck YASS!)

For now, I'm really happy to have my Book available on Etsy. And I'm looking forward to doing more birds, I'm planning on picking up #colorbirdz again in February.
