R is for Robin

This week's entry for Ben Towle's Animal Alphabet goes out to my niece, Robin.

Ball-point, marker & white gouache on brown paper, recolored & otherwise fooled with in Photoshop.

That's a very accurate-looking robin... and posted so early! (I guess it gets the worm.)

Art, I'd suggest legally changing your name, but Robin is jokken just wouldn't have the same ring to it...

Thank you Isaac! Unfortunately Dell has warned me to stop mashing worms into my computer or they will void the warranty.

I'd make a Batman joke, but it's Monday and it's raining, and I don't think I'll be fully awake anytime before dinner. ;)

Beautiful work as usual!

Holy Loopiness, Lupi! I just now noticed your comment...
I guess my Monday-blur lasted all week!

Thanks, Andrew-- not sure if I'll backtrack & do A through I-- at least not until I finish my alphabet on Oddments-- I seem to have become alphabet-obsessed!

I can't figure out how I was unaware of this other blog, since I visit your O&C blog so often! These are so wonderful!
