Illustration Friday - Linked

{Graphite with Digital Color, 2010}
{Graphite in Sketchbook, 2010}
I imagine sharing a worm is the standard Northern Cardinal wedding procedure. (and it is such a happy occasion, unless you are the worm!) I think it is utterly romantic that Cardinals mate for life. I drew this in my Moleskine sketchbook and then colored it quickly in Photoshop.
