Day 4 – An animal you’ve never drawn before

Day 4 | Magpie

I love magpies. If it weren’t for the lovely foxes I’ve met recently then magpies might well be my favourite animal. Never drawn one until today – drew two because I’m a bag of weakly held and contradictory beliefs and superstitions.

I went to London Zoo a few weeks back, and in the sunset over the canal watched a flock of magpies tumble around above the aviary. They were clearly mocking the inmates.
