Birbfest 2023

My good friend and fellow artist Angie turned me onto this fun challenge to draw a bird for every day of January. I tapped out after 23 days, but I still had a blast! All of these were done traditionally with pens and markers- it was a good excuse to get more familiar with the bucket of Copics I'd acquired over the course of a decade.
