Bird Illustrations

Welcome, bird lovers and art enthusiasts! We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our brand-new bird illustration products that beautifully blend the enchantment of avian creatures with a dash of wordplay. In this blog post, we'll take you on a delightful journey through our latest additions, showcasing two feathered friends: the "Booby Trap" featuring a blue-footed booby and "How the Terns Have Tabled" featuring terns. Our illustrations are hand-painted in gouache paint and scanned in a high resolution to ensure a high-quality print.

Booby Trap

This playful piece showcases the magnificent blue-footed booby in all its glory. The blue-footed booby is a bird native to the eastern Pacific Ocean, and, as the name suggests, has distinctive blue feet. Here, the boobies are in a precarious position, one is about to be caught in a box trap, and is none too happy about it, and the other is looking on with perhaps exasperation. This illustration is perfect for those who appreciate clever puns and enjoy a touch of whimsy

How the Terns Have Tabled

This illustration features terns, a sea bird found all over the world. This scene is a play on the phrase "how the tables have turned." Here, it is the terns themselves who are tabling, and it's a fine table indeed that they are making. Although, as with many group projects, there seems to be a difference of opinion on the next step. The distinctive shapes and delicate colour palette highlight these seabirds' beauty while adding playfulness.
