The Gold Canary (#26)

Gold, gold, gold canary

The Creative Panic is all about me mixing it up, getting away from the daily grind and having fun with illustration. I’d say I’m still finding my style, so I love to try different drawing styles from time to time. Today’s illustration, while nowhere near a technical masterpiece is honestly the most fun I’ve had with drawing for a while. Quick, loose lines with no use of CONTROL-Z (the modern eraser!) from start to finish.

I was sitting here, working away with iTunes on shuffle and Gold Canary by Cloud Control came on (the previous song was Closer by Nine Inch Nails and I really didn’t want to try to illustrate those lyrics if you know what I mean!) I grabbed the wacom pen, opened Illustrator and just went for it… a quickly as I could! I had a smile on my face for the 11 minutes it took to draw the thing (11 minutes because that’s how long it takes to play Gold Canary three times through!). I really dig the naïve feel of it, messy and chaotic.

And it’s a bird, WTF is it about me and birds at the moment… 🙂

Let me know what you think dudes!
