Day 323. Pencil Shavings Bird

18 Nov

I’ve been working fast and furious on birds and found myself with a dull pencil. After sharpening my pencil, I was inspired by the shavings to create today’s Bird-A-Day art. As with all of my birds, I learn something new that I can take with me. With today’s bird, I have learned to never assume there is only way to express your creativity with a pencil. “Getting the lead-out,” might mean – not using the lead at all. Enjoy.

Day 314. Pencil Scratch Bird

9 Nov

This was a complete accident. I dumped out shavings from a pencil sharpener and a bit of broken lead landed here and there. When I used my hand to clear away the shavings, bits of lead started making scratch like marks on the paper. Those slight scratches inspired today’s Bird-A-Day art. Enjoy.


Day 257. Pencil Sharpener Bird

15 Sep

Friday, I was actually doodling at work for a job. Imagine how fun that is for me. I love doodling. After a while I needed to sharpen my pencil and not having a pencil sharpener at my desk, I went on a search for one. Then finding a glorious, electric-powered pencil sharpener at the front desk, today’s Bird-A-Day art was born. One peek into the sharpener’s tray – filled with shavings and it was obvious this was one popular office tool. Enjoy.
