I hope some of you will join me in posting here or other places (Instagram? Twitter?) for this tiny series of illustrations. Here’s my first picture in the series:
As I thought about the song and how I would approach it, I couldn’t help but notice the TONS of birds in the song. What gives? I did tons of research into the history of the song and couldn’t find out their significance, but I did go with the historic “colly birds” meaning black (instead of “calling birds”).
I can’t wait to see what you guys did for this.
EDIT: I rescanned the painting as it was WAY too orange for some reason & I was in too much of a hurry at 6am this morning before work to fix it. It looks much better now!
