Bird Card

This past weekend was my husband's birthday so I decided to make him a card in the folksy-birdsy style that I have been obsessed with lately. You may think that a guy might not like such a fru-fru style, but my husband studies birds and thus appreciates all my attempts at bird art.

For all those graphic designers out there reading my blog, I used both Illustrator and Photoshop. I find it easier to scan a sketch and then trace the sketch in Illustrator. Then I copy and paste the shapes into Photoshop to do the shading.

I like this little bird so much I might adapt this into our Christmas card this year. Sorry to spoil the surprise if you get one!
