The Bowerbird


Here is a powdered graphite drawing for a graphic novella I have started working on. The white bars are for text, which I'll put in later. I wrote the story based on an Australian bird called the Satin Bowerbird, which is known to steal and collect blue things, shiny things and also (in this story) memories. The story features dreamscapes, life, death, love and revenge... but I'll tell you about that some other time, for now I have lots of drawing to do!

p.s. you can learn more about the bowerbird in this funny video
