about

This was originally supposed to be the one drawing of the Robin. However, after I had completed the vector artwork for it, and being very happy with the end result, I decided to explore and sketch out some of my other favourite birds. In the original sketches I had rocket flames coming out of the bottom, hence the name Rocket Birds. I decided not to include those flames as I felt they would clash with the clean lines of the vector illustrations.

The painting of the Robin was done later, and it was a challenge. Mainly, the lines that join up to form the shape of the eyes, and the lines that converge near the bottom. Challenging, but fun nonetheless.

To see short video clips of these being printed, see my Instagram posts: Robin, Toucan, Cardinal.
