Wow, we can’t believe it’s been two months since our last Birds Make the Art post. It’s certainly time for another. Today, we offer up three artists with very different approaches to capturing birds in their artwork.

Artwork by Brian Williams
Brian Williams, a freelance graphic designer, says birds are a big influence on his work. These six images, all graphite on bristol board, are part of his “Extinct Birds” series. “Unfortunately, there are many more extinct birds to draw,” Williams says. “I chose these as my first because of the variety of species and extinction dates...Plus, I just love some of their names.”
