Flocks of birds have been migrating to warmer climates for about a month now. Lately on my morning commute I pass a large flock of geese feeding in the open field. While this little guy isn’t a goose he has stopped for lunch at a nearby fruit tree to stock up for his long flight. I wonder where he’s going?
This sketch was inspired by an illustration in a recent edition of Layers magazine. The combination of retro styling with simple shapes is a nice departure from my normal style. I haven’t done a sketch in just pencil for quite awhile so I thought it was a good time to sharpen my pencils and have some fun. I used a 1B to rough in the elements and a 4B, 6B, and 9H for the details.
