Illustration Friday - Paisley

{Pen and Markers in Sketchbook, 2010}
Click for a slightly larger view :)
The prompt for Illustration Friday this week is Paisley. I decided to do a free form drawing with little paisley birds hidden amid all the patterns. I used Copic markers and Le Pen drawing pens. This was a really fun sketchbook piece to do... I just relaxed while I let the drawing take me wherever it wanted! How many birds can you find?
