More birthdays

Over the weekend was my bakeryfriend’s birthday. She has a tattoo of a swallow on her forearm–a very lovely one!–hence the inspiration for this card. I also just love the imagery of a flock of birds (anything but pigeons) carrying ribbons, or balloons or something across the sky.

It was interesting to draw, because it felt very loose and ‘messy’ when I first drew it, but then as I added detailing, I found that I kind of liked this ‘quicker, looser’ style…Also I really love using this bleu micron, instead of traditional black.
