CRAZY BIRD

Crazy Bird Illustration www.tamsartinflight.com
My crazy bird!  He's crazy and confused, is it a peacock?  Is it a turkey? Is it a flamingo?  Not really sure. I think I need to host a crazy creature swap on Swap-Bot!

Went to the rainy beach in Rockaway Oregon today to see the kite festival.  Boy these Oregonians are crazy! haha  I mean we will do anything in the rain.  We looked like drowned rats two minutes into our kite festival on the beach experience.  The giant kites looked like huge whales in the sky.  That's what my 15yr old said.  I thought that was so true.  People are very clever with the designs and tricks they can do with the kites. 

 These images I found on google images.  They are similar to what we saw. Hard to see the size.

Above are the tricky ones...four different people are flying these four kites together doing synchronized acrobatic routines!!  WOW was I impressed.

Happy Sunday Sketches!

I think crazy bird and crazy fish are both marvelous... I can't wait to see what is next... and the kits festival does sound like fun even if it was raining... and yes you are mad!!!

I love your crazy bird. He looks like he would be fun to create. You are so lucky to live close to the beach - any weather is beach weather for me. The only problem is that it is six hours away.

Love your drawings. They are so colorful and whimsical. Being a huge fan of both peacocks and flamingos, I can see where combing them into one creature just works. I look forward to looking at the rest of your work.
