Every week, Illustration Friday tosses out a word for enthusiasts to draw, and just about every Friday my work is not among the entrants. Usually I think of an idea by Tuesday and just can't get it done in time for Thursday night. Maybe I would do better if it was Illustration Fortnight!

Last week's theme was "beginner" and the idea came very naturally - a young bird learning to fly. I didn't have a particular bird in mind when I sketched him, but he came out a sparrow!

  3. Thanks guys! I don't do cartoons a lot so I'm glad it came out super cute. There are so many good entries I don't know how they decide to pick a winner...the beginner winner was a monster drawing with crayons :-)
