graphite and digital coloring, 2014
This image started as a simple material study, but I decided to push it further in the hopes of creating a more refined illustration with better integration of traditional and digital media.
I’ve been revisiting this character lately..
I saw a weird thing at the beach today, and decided to get a sketch of it.
As told by this fellow I met earlier today, apparently this pelican died while trying to swallow a fish. Through a tear in its throat you could see the fish. It seems like a pretty strange occurrence, but ya know… people die from choking sometimes, so why wouldn’t the same rules apply to the animal kingdom?
