Back to Print

A friend of mine runs a local self-publishing company called Back to Print and last month came out with a wonderful zine collection of stories about FAMILY.  I was asked to do a few illustrations to accompany the stories!

This is one of the drawings inspired by a story of a dad who started feeding wild animals in the back yard.

Im pretty proud; it was the first time i was able to draw BIRDS!

If you live in the Chicago area, stop by Quimby’s to pick up a copy, or one of Back to Print’s other great creations!

Upon review, i’ve concluded two things are true:

1.  That I can’t draw live models

2.  I think my drawing skills have DEcreased

In my defense last night’s were only five minutes each…
