I can't hear you - illustration

A personal project, exploring some new techniques.

I always have such a struggle to title my drawings or name my painted things. I'm not huge on words in general - I can never remember song lyrics - unlike my strange Mr Tom who knows every word to every song from the 80s and 90s.

Normally I title them something very simple so I can remember which one is which, however this drawing is a little bit different.

It's called 'I can't hear you'. I added some holes into the side of it's head and into one of the horns last minute because I suddenly thought, how is he going to hear the cardinal. And then thought, ' I don't even know what bird's ears look like... have I even ever seen a bird's ear?!?'. I sort of imagine them to be something like a snake's ear. (I have just now googled bird's ears and they are even weirder than I thought... Google it for yourself to satisfy your curiosity)
 If you have been following my work for a while, this may remind you of a couple of other drawings. 
For a while now I've been doing a lot of pen drawings with no colour... Which I love, but I sort of missed paint and colour. I've been obsessing over this artist's work for a while now, loving the way he creates fur texture (he is using spray paint for the most part, but its more about the outcome than the technique). 
 
The end
