Ruffled Feathers

My job is so unique. I work in fashion but what I end up drawing for designers and companies changes every day. Today's project involves pretty parrots. Found some really adorable photo inspiration for this, just thought I'd share with you. You always ask me where my inspiration comes from, and this just proves it: everywhere.

Of course this photoshoot served as MAJOR inspiration.
and this one made me reconsider a new family pet.
I can hardly believe it but these pretty pink birds have me ready for a trip to the zoo!

I love the first photo! It's so sweet, and their feathers look amazingly soft. I'd wear anything inspired by this.

I went to the zoo last week in Wichita and was ooing and awwing over all of the beautiful tropical birds in their rainforest exhibit. The colors!! So inspiring, indeed.

beautiful, what unique inspiration. Although I find it hard to see the pink and grey gallah's as beautiful when they sit outside my window in the 100's and wake me up at 5am every morning!
