Indigo Bunting - sketched from a pic I took while cycling last summer. We came across the downed bird out by Willard, Missouri. It had been hit by a car and was too beautiful not to eventually honor it in artwork form.

Squid in color pencil.
Puddles the Clown (Puddles Pity Party), look him up on Youtube. His work with Postmodern Jukebox is awesome and weird.

Last month I picked up some rivercane bamboo along the Buffalo River, taking care to only take pieces that had already been broken off and dead. I don't want to contribute to erosion issues by taking live plants. It's probably not legal, anyway. I fashioned some rough dip India ink pens and made the following art with them.
Ghost crab, India ink and watercolor wash. Ghost crabs are native to where I grew up in SW Florida and their burrows dot the beaches.

Architectural flourishes in India ink, sketched from pics I took at the City Museum in St. Louis last year.
I like the look of the dip pens, but it takes some preparation to use the ink wisely and without mess, so I bought a standard brush pen and decided to take in my field carry sketch bag. Here are some done with it.
