Great Tit


The Great Tit (Parus major) which is native to Great Britain.

I am looking forward to adding these to my life list when the wife and I visit England later this year. If for no other reason, than to loudly brag about seeing them.

Hoatzin


Pronounced, "Watson".

Hoatzins are super bizarro prehistoric looking birds from the Amazon jungle. They still have vestigial hooked claws on their wings, which the young birds use to climb back into trees (since they usually perch in bushes above jungle swamps full of predators).   

I saw a tree laden with these when I was in Ecuador, and it was amazing/hilarious.

This is my second attempt at watercolors and colored pencils. Still need new colored pencils. haha.

American Carnage: Inauguration 2017


"This American carnage stops right here, and right now". 

Seems a tad hyperbolic.

Donald Trump as Carnage, the Spider-man villain. Because they're both evil. And slimy.

Bossk


Did a quick sketch of Bossk to try my hand and watercolors shaded with colored pencils.

I really need some different colored pencils.

Goblin Shark


The deep sea dwelling Goblin Shark. To catch their prey they rapidly extend their jaws. It's pretty disturbing looking.

Another recent watercolor.

Tanuki


The Tanuki, a subspecies of the Asian Raccoon Dog. Native to Japan.

I had to throw in a sake bottle for good measure.

Done in watercolors. Lately I've been relaxing by doing small watercolor paintings.
