Movies with girls and girls with movies.
I need to own this person’s comics now.
Maybe if I pray every night
You’ll come back to me
And maybe if I cried everyday
You’ll come back to stay
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, maybe
Maybe if I hold your hand
You will understand
Maybe if I kiss your lips
I’ll be at your command

If I was to ever create a cartoon series, my characters would be doing lots of this. Lots of disgusted / offended / confused faces. Lot’s of “whatever!”, “eww!” and “omfg wut!”.
I think it looks cute. Like how Lilo from Lilo and Stitch poked her tongue out alot. I like that.
New illustration for the Globe and Mail for the Facts and Arguments section today. For an essay written by a woman who loves bird watching and likes to imagine herself in the field with the “twitchers” (the serious bird watchers) but is content watching them from the comforts of home.
I love when you get to learn something new through an illustration assignment. For instance, I had no idea that serious bird watchers are called “twitchers” and there are a quite a few terms that go along with that whole sub-culture. Check out this page on wikipedia for a list of twitcher terms!
I’m in the same boat as the author of the essay. I love birds and can recognize quite a few but I’m not terribly great at identifying birds. My boyfriend, on the other hand, is amazing at it! I can always ask him what that bird flying over head is and he’s always telling me all the cool birds he spots on his commute to work.
Another shot bird anecdote: a couple of days ago I saw a “plastic” (twitcher term for a bird escaped from captivity - thank you wikipedia) while out walking my dog. There was a bright yellow and green budgie hanging out with the sparrows in the park. You could see the little guy from a mile away, he was so bright. He looked pretty content though, eating some berries off the ground. I’ve been trying to see if I can find him again on my walks but I haven’t :( Hopefully he’s doing ok.
Thanks to Ben Barrett-Forrest for the assignment and for letting me draw some birds! Birds, birds, birds.
