This was a series of illustrations I did for Living Bird magazine at the Cornell Ornithology Lab in the winter of 2018.
The article focuses on 5 birds that have adapted to withstand the conditions of winter rather than migrating. The birds of focus are Corvids (Common ravens, in this case), Black-capped Chickadees, Ruffed Grouse, Pileated Woodpeckers and Golden-crowned Kinglets.
There are at least 3-4 illustrations done for each bird, which were then composited together in photoshop to create a full scene. 14-15 illustrations were created in total, all of which were done on clay-board.
Color was added in digitally using Adobe Photoshop
