Working on another project

This is a snapshot of another project I’m working on.


A bird in the hand is worth two in the…hedge?

JRD recently got me copies of the Hedge Knight, The Sworn Sword, and The Mystery Knight graphic novels. *swoon*

For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about <!> – these are the short stories written by George RR Martin about Dunk & Egg (prequels to ASoIaF, if you will).

I’ve finished reading The Hedge Knight, and am about halfway through The Sworn Sword. The artwork is fantastic. It’s done by the Dable Brothers, who happen to have also put out the Wheel of Time: New Spring comic, which was similarly amazing.

Anyone who follows me has probably picked up on my love of birds, so it will be no surprise that my two favourite images in The Hedge Knight are avian. :>

Allow me to share my love

The image to the left has a special place in my heart, however, as I’ve always pictured the Opopanax as being a bird with blue and red plumage much like this one, but more similar in size to a peacock.

My Many Faces

I’ve gotten quite the collection of avatars over the last year. I’ve also noted that birds have mostly been a common theme. JRD & J-May like to joke that I’m as fragile as a glass butterfly, but I prefer to think of myself as being delicate like a bird (ka-KAW!).

These have been my most frequently used self-representaions lately. I drew the sad-face owl, but the other ones are just peectures I adore.
