Great Blue Heron

My family and I went on canoe trips to the Ozarks every Summer, and we got used to seeing these birds wading on the riverside or flying like a pterosaur overhead. Far from rare, yet I’ll always get excited every time I spot one.

Basically my spirit animal.

The black/white version was made with fountain pens and ink wash. Next, I scanned it and quickly splashed on some color in Photoshop.
