# 30, 75 day ink sketch challenge

I have no backyard to participate in the great backyard bird-count. The only regular birds here are a family of house sparrows living in a crack in the brick's mortar of our small apartment building.

(Unless you count the pigeons next door, but they have been scarce lately.)

But I did happen to spy this strange species of bird perched on a small shelf in my bathroom. He says he was made in "Occupied Japan".


  1. A rare species indeed! Lovely sketch.

  2. This is lovely! Amazing work, especially done straight in ink!!

  3. Thanks! I 'roughed it in' first very lightly in ink, then darkened the lines I liked. So it was easier than the continuous contour sketches I've been doing lately.
