Drawing from Nature: Bird on a Budget

I kept talking Gayla’s ear off about drawing in these hardcover engineering log books I remembered from highschool physics class. Something about drawing on top of those thin blue/green grids pulled at some aesthetic urge in me. This week she found the next best thing in a thrift store, an old bound Blueline ledger. Above you can see the first drawing I made in it yesterday on Arts & Crafts night.

If you would like a print, note card, or even an iPhone case of this budget-minded bird (or one of the previous birds) you are in luck! Check out our Society6 shop


This post is the third in the “Drawing from Nature” series by Davin Risk. All birds have sprung purely from the imagination and any similarity to true species is entirely accidental.

  1. I’m just the opposite! I keep telling my 17 year old son to STOP doing his rough sketches and storyboard on lined paper! I buy him sketchbooks, storyboard notebooks, etc. but he still shows me his latest work on lined paper!

    You must have doodled and drawn during your physics class!
