I've been getting some great entries for the "Bird Week" competition. Keep them coming!
Shaun Tan is an Australian artist and book illustrator and has a fantastic website covered in drawings. His book "The Rabbits" explores racism through metaphor and intricate illustration.
The illustrations from this book inspired me to create the "Paddock "series of work based on the paddock around my home.
The Featured birds for Bird Tuesday are Michael Simon's bird pots. It is hard to find images from this American potter on the web. Michael Simon's birds are elusive and display strong graphic tendencies, making their nests to fill whatever space they find. Initially plain without exotic plumage, I've grown to love these birds for their simple strength.
