Animalia: Guest Artist!
Jenie Gao - the Spoonbill
Jenie Gao is an artist living and working in Milwaukee, WI.
For as long as I have known her, she has always drawn animals,
so I figured she would be perfect at guest artisting for Animalia.
I didn't know about the spoonbill until Jenie accidentally drew this
one instead of a shoebill, which is also forthcoming for animalia.
Jenie sent me the pen and ink drawing and I colored it,
but I really think Jenie's B/W drawings work better w/o color.
(Also, I had trouble figuring out what color I should do the b/g)
Either way, shoebills are crazy colors:
flamingo pink, Big Bird yellow, and sky blue.
Anyways, thanks Jenie!
