The Slumbering Herd

Lionel Shoebill ATC, 2.5” x 3.5” Copics, Microns

Lionel comes from a long line of strangely-colored shoebills. The color always passes down to the male members of the family (much to the chagrin of his sisters). Family legend suggests that a great-great-great uncle was a Toucan, but really, how would that be possible? (Answer: Nature finds a way!)

Made for a Birds swap at illustratedatcs.com.
