The Bird That Waits

Giclee Print, 9 x 7, archival paper.

This one is related to a series of semi-cartoon like bird illustrations that I am thinking about for a set of note cards.  One set of these cards have been selling at a local high-end fashion boutique.  I am thinking of another set for children’s stores.  They need to be cute and they will be, even though I might not call this young creature so cute.  It is watercolor, soluble marker and then pen & ink, after which I used PhotoShop to clean up a couple of divots.  And, it is the same expression that the cat makes when we have not been quick enough with the food.


About mmgilbert

I have been drawing and painting all my life. Now part of the “New Symbolist” movement which encompasses both Goth, fantasy and tattoo art as well as the century-old work of Odilon Redon, I focus on archetypal and mythic imagery to evoke emotional themes and to reference darker fantasies. I have an abiding interest in figurative drawing, working on paper and exploring new ways to handle traditional materials. I studied with Edward Millman, a WPA muralist; at Purchase College; and at the Art Students League in New York.
