Last month I finally wrapped up the many custom bird commissions I owed folks from the Cartozia Tales Kickstarter. Figured it was time to put them all up in one place. If these strike your fancy you’ll be happy to hear that custom bird watercolors are 15% off from now till December 14th — just enter the code BIRDBOATS at checkout!
Welcome, friends, to my brand new site! After realizing that my former blog theme was no longer supported on WordPress and therefore failing to load images properly, I upgraded to a new theme and have spent the afternoon putting together a more robust and well organized homepage for you all to enjoy.
There are some sections that are still under construction and some kinks that are still getting worked out, so do bear with me as I bumble though, but hopefully the overall experience is much improved.
Since this wouldn’t be a proper blog post without some art, here’s a smattering of doodles from the past week. I’ve been out sick for four days with a killer cold, so this has basically been my M.O. of late:
Then there’s the first wave of backer birds for those of you who were kind enough to support the Cartozia Tales Kickstarter. Thank you!
And a couple portraits from the past month to round things out:
More comics! For you! Here’s the second installment of pages from my Grand Canyon trip last month, covering the Adventure with the Flash Flood and our run through Lava Falls. The last batch of pages will go up on Wednesday due to a Leaving My Sketchbook at Home Like an Idiot error.
For the many of you who have asked about a print edition, never fear. Your wild cries have been heard and I’ll be putting one together before the end of October. Thanks for convincing me to make ’em!
As promised, here’s the first half of my diary strips from my trip through the Grand Canyon! I had so much fun drawing these. It’s been far too long since I had the space and time to just draw for myself every day. Part two should be up sometime next week, so keep an eye out.
Got to do some more tiny birds for a client recently! A more fearsome batch this time, including: Golden Eagle, Red-Tailed Hawk, Pacific Screech Owl, Barn Owl, and Osprey.
Also a Hoopoe, but who can ever take those guys seriously.
Have a particular bird you’d like painted? Let me know!
Wrapped up this little triptych of sea creatures last week for a client in Seattle. They were so much fun to paint! I really enjoy working with vibrant watercolors. He asked for a layout where they could hang staggered on a vertical plane, so I overlapped the elements from each one to give them a little continuity. I couldn’t really get them to match up perfectly in the WordPress interface, but this is close.
If you’re interested in a small watercolor commission of your own, I currently have some slots available. Get in touch at lucypcbellwood[at]gmail[dot]com for more info!
Time for another avian post! A surprised cardinal and other assorted colorful birds. (The latter are for sale!) I’ll be producing a print series of these little guys soon, so if you can’t afford original art, keep your eyes peeled.
Happy Christmas, all you nice people. Please enjoy this badger. From me to you.
Here’s a little Avatar-themed commission I wrapped up for someone recently.
