Weekly Bow Tie Guy

Flamingo (fləˈmi ng gō):

One of my past students requested a flamingo bow tie guy and since I had recently completed one I thought I would post it today. I had been working on drawing a flamingo for some time, but it wasn’t until I drew the flamingos at the Fairbanks Museum that I finally understood how they work visually. There is something about seeing things in real life that you just can’t mimic from a photo. They are awkward birds. I didn’t know that they hold their bill upside down in the water in order eat.
