Only a few short days left until the fabulous BIRDS exhibition comes to a close. Dust off your wings and take flight to Newsagency Gallery in Petersham to catch a glimpse of some beautiful works of the feathered variety. I was hoping to exhibit a few works myself, however a sudden change in schedule left me in a flap and unable to make the deadline (or update the blog)…shame!
A beautiful illustration by Andrew Ensor.
Birds of War by James Cottam –
In WW2 during the blitz, all birdwatchers were mobilised to spot planes, they were given outlines of planes for ID purposes. James re-drew these outlines with added bird wing profiles, then mounted them on vintage 1940’s wallpaper.
A couple of my rough hummingbird drawings.
