Yellow Warbler

Both of these guys could use some color, but I’m traveling and only brought my pencils so gray and white is what you get.

Here’s what I don’t get: my field guide lists like 25 species of warbler, but they all have the same body shape and only appear to differ in coloration. Are they really all different species?

This is a stylistic follow-up to my Steller’s Jay from last April.  I made it for a friend.

Booker Makes a Solid Play for 0.3% of the Electorate June 27, 2019

Cory Booker sez:

We Don’t Talk Enough About Trans Americans, Especially African American Trans Americans

Naw, Mr. Booker. We talk plenty about social justice and its myriad fractionated, intersectionalized plaintiffs.

We don’t talk enough about heroes.

*That 0.3% estimate of the number of trans people has since doubled, but I personally think that doubling has a lot to do with the trendiness of alternate gender definitions. All the cool kids have a funky gender. I assume that once the novelty and notoriety wear off, things will go back to normal, but then I thought that about rap music as well.

I found a beautiful painting of a black-and-white warbler by Winston Porter and fell in love with the technique, so this is my experiment with his style. I love it.
