Chickadee



My little bird didn't start out so little. I shrunk him down to make the haiga.

Ohhh haiga AND an image! Great application to illustrating 'feathers'! It's difficult translating their softness but a 'crayon look' is perfect! Hmmm, might eat some pinenuts :)

Just wonderful, Cat...I love chickadees. Your haiku goes perfect with the illo.

Hiding pinenuts did you say? From the look of our tubby little buddy, I bet I know where! :D

He's very cheery. He seems so alive I thought I saw him move and thought that this was an animated image!

Gorgeous!
