Illustration Friday: Old-fashioned

"Call me old-fashioned, but I prefer sitting on a branch," said Walter to the birds on the wire.




(Obviously I'm continuing on with the bird on a wire theme from last week.) I've been doing IF since May and wanted to take a moment to thank the IF community for your support and encouragement. I LOVE seeing all of the fantastic work and I am so jazzed that people take the time to leave comments. Soon, in addition to IF, I'll be blogging weekly about the process of making my first picture book. Please consider becoming a follower. Thank you!
