Illustration Friday - Spring

Spring illustration by Liz Wong
It's our first spring out in the suburbs, and birds start chirping at an insane hour of the morning. I always used to love birds, but I guess that was when I didn't acutally have any around. Still, the birds are much better than drunk people outside yelling at 2 in the morning, and construction at 7 am. Yeah, I guess I'll take the birds.

Yes, those birds can make quite a racket at dawn! I live on six acres of wooded land, so it's like a bird orchestra during the summer months. It's actallu kind of cool trying to figure out what they might be saying... Anyway, I love the illo...great contrast between the person's expression and the bird's expression! The colors and composition work really well, too. Happy Spring:>

Cute! Yes, noisy birds are far better than noisy drunks aren't they?

Hahaha I feel your pain. An English friend once told me "In England we have very plain looking birds, but they sing beauitfully. In Australia you have beautiful birds, but they make the most awful racket".

It's true. I used to get woken up very early every morning by the screaches of about 20 sulpher crested cockatoo's on my lawn. I don't care how beautiful you are, if you wake me, I will hate you all day long.
