Lady Macbeth by socar
Lady Macbeth

"Di sangue umano sa qui sempre.
Arabia intera rimondar sì piccol mano 
Co' suoi balsami non può."

Or, if I remember Shakespeare's version correctly, "Here’s the smell of the blood still; all the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand."

Can't remember who told me to turn Lady Macbeth into a creepy opera bird, but if you're out there, thanks; I liked drawing her. I used a Luzon bleeding heart dove, for her, though in retrospect, a robin should've been a better fit for the Scottish, or in this case, the Scottish opera.

A good goal for me, I think, is to learn how to letter properly.

Niggles and Mr. Nobody Fade Away by socar
Niggles and Mr. Nobody Fade Away
Niggles and Mr. Nobody were my childhood imaginary friends. Niggles is the two-headed bird; Mr. Nobody is the irritated-looking man in the crown. He is angry because I grew up and forgot him, and now, he is almost gone. Niggles faces the same fate, but because he's only a bird, he doesn't have to know about it.

Don Giovanni by socar
Don Giovanni

"La povera infelice è di me innamorata, e per pietà deggio fingere amore, ch'io son, per mia disgrazia, uom di buon cuore."

The creepy opera birds strike again! What bird could I possibly use, to depict Don Giovanni, but the hideous marabou stork? There is no skankier-looking bird on earth. It even has a neck that looks like a scrotum, though I drew some clothing over that. Because even Don Giovanni would probably keep THAT part of his anatomy under wraps, out in public.

Here, he describes himself as being, even to his own detriment, a good-hearted man. Yeaaaaah...sounds about right. Uh-huh.

Infestation by socar
2.9" x 5.7"

There's a tree across the road from me, which is filled with so many birds' many birds' nests.  I like to think about them when I'm trying to get to sleep--y'know, the way they're woven into the branches, so they don't fall down.  I could probably build one, myself, at this point, though I doubt the birds would appreciate that.  Talk about lowering property values....

Ears! Ears! I have ears!
Small, not-pushy-at-all, reminder of where you can buy my work, should you feel so inclined: - Copies of "Horace Spiegelman Gets Made Redundant" are still available here, along with lots of lovely work by Agent Agnes. - Get your prints here...prints of many of my most recent pieces. As always, if there's something you want to see, which isn't there, tell me; I can probably put it there. (Birds of Lore prints will be available AFTER publication, though.)… - A few of my ORIGINALS are available here, AND there is a handy shopping cart thingy, so you don't even have to talk to me, in order to complete the transaction. - My own site, of course, also has originals for sale, and a wider selection. But it doesn't have a shopping cart, so you WILL have to e-mail me, if there's something you want. I take PayPal and Interac e-transfers. :-) - Prints of some of my older work can still be got, here.

There might be other stuff knocking about, that I've forgotten about--but this should suffice, for the blatant art-pushing.

Loving the book 'Fantasy Art Drawing Skills' in the bookstore.
I love your attention to the sketch book work, the underlying structural design and I see hints of a golden section being employed. Overall a magnificent book for young fantasy artists.
