Life List 2

Still catching up on posting my Life List paintings. This is a series of paintings that I'm doing of the bird species on my Life List.

I feel like I started to figure out my style part way through this series of four. The tomtit and mew gull were both a learning experience.

Life List 1

About a year ago I started a new long-term project; I'm painting small (approx 4" X 4") acrylic illustrations of species from my birding Life List. I've been posting them on my Instagram account (chuckletree) as I finish the paintings, but haven't been keeping up as well on DeviantArt. I aim to fix that. 

Looking back at this first round, I've learned a lot this year.

Currently my Life List stands at 471. This project may take a while. At this rate it will take me 15 years to complete - assuming I don't see any new species. 

Any other birders in the joint, or am I officially too old for DeviantArt?

Brooklyn 99 - Part 3

Crap. I just realized that I forgot to upload this final series of caricatures from Brooklyn 99. Good timing though, since it returns on the 10th (yes!).

From left to right it's: Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti), Michael Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker - best name ever), Norm Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller)
