A Rare Sighting

This weird bird was recently spotted in a jungle somewhere…

A Crawfish-Bibbed Spear-Head Bird

It is so hidden in camouflage…

That it takes people time to recognize it.

Yet, if you are patient you will be lucky to see…

A rare sighting of this bird!

I hope it gives you a smile today…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!

Cheers! 🙂

A Strange Case…

Today’s weird bird is a strange case

Could it be Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde?

A before and after photo:

Perhaps it is just an ordinary “Two-Headed Hat bird,” not to be confused with this one: The Cat Bird

If you’d like to inspect it further, here is a close-up photo:

Hope your day is clearly fabulous…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

More Clip Art…

Remember  The Paper Clips ?

Well, these strange birds didn’t want to miss out on the fun…

So they decide to “clip” together…

And wish you a happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

I hope this gives you a smile today…

Cheers! 🙂

P.S.  Who knew that wine foils and paper clips could become Clip Art! 😉

What The?!

Bleep!!

A short blip to wish you…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!

Cheers! 🙂

Vamoose

Today’s weird bird decided to “hightail” it out of here…

Paddle-Tailed Vamoose bird

When it saw the moose in the forest…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

May your imagination soar! Cheers! 🙂

The Feckenham Family…

The Feckenham family had similar features…

And could easily be found in a crowd!

Hope these funny faces give you a smile today!

Put On Your Dancing Shoes…

Did you know that my hubby and I took 3 years of ballroom dance lessons?

We learned to dance the waltz, fox trot, swing and tango!  We took evening classes from our local community college several years ago.

I haven’t danced in quite a while so I thought today was a good day to…

Put on my dancing shoes!!

I hope you join me in doing the “Birdy Boogie” for Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

“Berry” Quirky…

We were challenged to make a quirky character on any surface using any material from my online class, Drawing Quirky Characters…

This assignment was just what I needed to get my creative juices flowing again!

I started with a previous drawing and folded the paper in half vertically.  Using the white gel pen sketch as my guide, I cut out my quirky gal with scissors:

I don’t think I could have invented this hat without my scissors… (It reminds me of a hat that Wilma from the Flintstones might wear!) 😉

Lucy Cooke suggested I use it as a stencil so I did in my sketchbook with fluid acrylic paint:

F72C1884-8970-4244-90EA-587804152C77

Next, I drew details with pencil, added watercolor pencils, pan pastels to soften her features, black pen, white gel pen and color pencils:

I think she is “berry” quirky!  How about you?!

Note:  This was a fun way to create my own stencil.  I look forward to using this idea with other subjects too.

Cheers! 🙂

A Bit Of A Drip…

Some days the creative whimsy just doesn’t flow…

Yet, this little experiment with acrylic ink, water and alcohol did!

As you can see, today’s weird bird is a bit of a drip!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

P.S. Do you ever have one of those days when you have a creative block?  What do you do to get your creative ideas flowing again?  I hope you share them with me!

More Quirkiness…

I don’t think we can ever have too much quirkiness, do you?!  I love drawing these whimsical faces.  🙂

I created these drawings in the Dina Wakley sketchbook that I told you about in this post: A New Art Journal

The first drawing is extra scribbly.  I started with a black Micron pen and added the white gel pen afterwards:

A young man in an extra tall quirky hat!

I’m really liking how the white gel pen pops on the brown kraft paper:

I added a little color and shading to these quirky gals with color pencil…

I am so enjoying Lucy Cooke’s Quirky Characters online class!  Lucy recently did a short video of the quirky character drawings from the class – I hope you check it out at:  ArtcyLucyStudio.com and go to her “Blog” which will lead you to the class artwork.

Cheers! 🙂
