I love birds.
Like, a lot. I love to watch them, learn about them, and especially--draw them.
I also love science and education.
Biology encompasses so much of our existence--from the vast structure and interactions of the biosphere around us, to the hormones that cause an eastern bluebird to start singing in the spring. The more we know about our world, the more we care about it, and the more we do to protect it.
I ALSO love stories.
My childhood was spent either devouring fantasy books and graphic novels, or writing my own. I took a long break from making my own stories while I focused on school, but now I've got the itch to start working on them again, with birds and their fantastical and realistic dramas at the forefront.
I want to create art that celebrates birds, science, and storytelling for a living!
After pondering and pursuing about seventeen different potential career paths, I have realized what I knew all along: I want to keep drawing and painting and animating and learning about and teaching about and telling stories about birds for the rest of my life.
And I want to share that work with you!
I make what I make for you guys. I want to make you laugh, cry, learn, or simply wonder. If you would like to support me, there are many ways to do so--you can share my work on Tumblr/Facebook/Twitter/etc., hire me to make art for you or your projects, or you can help me financially via Patreon.
As a thank you from me, you'll get access to process and concept posts, receive postcards featuring original art, art and basic biology tutorials, sets of greeting cards, and more!
Thank you for starting this adventure with me. I look forward to sharing my work with you!
