Beard Study #1
He's tiny, only 4x4 inches.
Ink, watercolor, and cut paper in a vintage frame.

This feels more like an experiment than an actual art piece, because I've pretty much only been drawing animals for the last 3 years. And I'm sort of working up to a big body of work that is different than everything else, so I wanted to do something small just to see how it looks. But I like this guy a lot.
I'm going to make lots of bearded friends for him who are bigger and have more stories to tell.

So cute! Very interesting. I enjoy that it's so small. And I like how the birds feel a bit separate from the beard. His eyes are warm and cuddly, too. Nice job!

Life through the eyes of a quirky music/tv/movie lover and AP Studio Art student on the hunt for the right art school. Chaos ensues.

tremendous.  I think the small size kind of adds to the feeling of your piece.

That's such a great idea.  My mom has birds in her brain.  I have butterflies in my feet.

I wish I had artistic talent like that!

I love the colors and the style.

It reminds me of the band the Decemberists.

I love the style, too.  It reminds me of the Washington video from Superdeluxe.com.  But cuter.

He's absolutely darling!  I love that the beard overlaps the frame.  And I love the title, inevitabley.

It's smart not to eat anything you find in a mirror.

i really like it, size and subject matter, the whole package.  i'm looking forward to seeing his bearded friend.  it'd be cool to see an unusually large beardman juxtaposed with your unusually small beardman!
