Zoey Crow

'Tis the season for angry crows here in Metro Vancouver (they're guarding their nests – eggs and now fledglings). Inspired in part by this, and wanting to do an artistic project in Adobe Illustrator, I drew this artwork, "Zoey Crow". Zoey Crow is mad because you're too close to her nest and not readily giving up your food. Silly hoo-man.

It's an attempt to make something complicated with lots of simple shapes (mostly ellipses, triangles, and line segments). Looking at reference photos also made me realize that crows are, in their way, very colourful birds – I've tried to emphasize that here. If you like Zoey a lot, you can download a hi-res version for your 4K/Retina desktop.
