My Sister the Botanist

botanistextraordinaire

My sister is taking a botany class this semester, and I drew this as a way to celebrate her pursuing what she loves. It has been really exciting to learn about various local plants from her hikes and field journals. She also loves alpacas, but apparently you can’t actually ride them in real life. Ah, the fantasy world of illustration. 🙂

Again playing around with a more simplistic character style here.

Bee Hummingbird for #BirdDay!

It’s that day again, Draw a Bird Day! This little guy is a bee hummingbird, the smallest species of bird in the world. There are several photos out there of these little guys sitting on pencils, and I thought I’d have a go at painting one of my own for Bird Day. 🙂

And silly me, I almost forgot to post a link back to our fearless leader for Draw a Bird Day, Laura at Create Art Everyday!
