Illustrations for the Worble

The Worble, a group of incredibly talented skaters asked me to put together three illustrations of birds for a line of apparel for them. They wanted the drawing done in a similar style to John James Audubon. I've always loved the intricate detail and decorativeness of his work and I wanted to make sure to capture those characteristics of his painting into these illustrations but at the same time make them bold enough to look clean when screen printed.  This is the rough sketch for the first illustration, depicting a male and female Blue Throated Black Warbler. Moving on to final line work very soon! Check back to see the finished artwork!
