SPARROW TO THE RESCUE

I was asked by Andrew Boardman to put together a custom illustration for his company’s (MANOVERBOARD) annual calendar that gets sent out to clients. They like to go with a bird theme every year, so I was pretty much the perfect choice for this! The theme for that year was “hope”, so we came up with the idea of this little bird rescuing a boat that was in trouble. One of my favourite custom jobs.

Designed by request of a friend, I love this crow design. I feel it comes off as dark and twisty, but friendly and accessible at the same time.
