finn's oriole

so this one is the one that is somewhat better than the hot-mess i tried to do for smash-girl. i slowed down with the lettering. it helps that the bird is in a wacky position. most of the bird stamps are pretty, but they are pretty traditional poses on limbs. we have so many zany stamps these days, i guess i am less inspired by the traditional designs. not that i don't like traditional things...i love getting old. i'm less obsessed with analyzing everything. maybe. i guess i have to go analyze that thought. then i have to figure out where to put the street and zip.....

 that F needs some weight at the top. but i am not going to scan it again.


  1. Thank you for sending this one - it is stunning in person.

  2. you're welcome. it is on that really nice bamboo paper, so you're right, you do have to see it in person to get the full effect
