One bird, Four Drawings

One day I was looking for a picture of a blue bird to make a drawing for The Creative Color Challenge. I found a cute little bird and I painted this:

The Blue bird

A couple of days ago I was looking into my files and I found the picture of the cute little bird and I decide to draw the bird again but this time I had other idea in mind. I wanted to draw the bird but he supposed to be talking about the things he sees every day, like flowers and trees… And I made this drawing


After the black and white version of this little bird talking totally random things, I scanned the original piece (I made it in watercolor paper with ink) and added some color in Illustrator

Random Talking

And after I finished coloring the piece, I thought will be funny having a bird asking you to please talk to him, and I create this print
BTW, Urban Outfitters has selected this Print "Talk to Me" to be included in the Print Shop on! Check it here ;)

Talk to me print

And why I really thought a bird talking will be funny? Because I imagined a t-shirt like this one and in my mind, it’s funny ;)

Talk to me T-shirt

And now that little picture I found in August have 4 different interpretations ;)
Happy weekend!

I love everything about this post. That the little picture can have four different interpretations is so poetic. I looooove the one where the bird is talking about what he sees all day! Such a great idea, and very beautiful. xo

Hey! I've been following your blog for awhile, beautiful work! I had a small question for you: after you import into illustrator, do you use live trace? I'm struggling big time with it and I wonder if there's a better way. The detail you get is incredible!
