I was unaware of any of these artists when I drew the Magpie illustration recently but a post on Drawn has just made me aware of the Bird illustrations of Josh Brill, Eleanor Grosch and Charley Harper. Josh Brill’s are particularly gorgeous, but they are all fantastic. I can just imagine having a huge glossy coffee table book full of any of these.
2nd EDIT: Jeez. It would appear there’s a whole subculture of stylised bird illustrators out there. I’ll throw Jojo Yeung into the mix now too
