Bird Dancer

Fantasy inspired by a film I saw featuring a Polynesian dance and song in honor of a bird that courts in the air. Originally it was an 8 inch by 10 inch black and white acrylic painting on canvasboard. Anitra scanned it and used it to liven up pamphlets promoting her writing workshop, StreetWrites. The original was sold long ago. This image was scanned anew from one of those pamphlets, which explains the grainy texture.

Ink Tiger

Pen & ink tiger based on an newspaper ad for a circus. If you click on it, it will be shown twice its actual size. I used to do drawings like this when I was driving a cab in the 80s, usually with metal dip pens, but sometimes with ballpoint. This looks like ballpoint to me.
