Feathered Friends

Feathered Friends

Well. I've see both emus and robins in the zoo in my hometown - the emus being residents and the robins visitors - though not quite like that.

4x6 inches, markers on card. The title was a prompt at Sketch Fest, and the image is available there for sale

Levitating Chicken

Being able to "fly" well had sounded like a good idea, until it turned out just how hard landing was...

Wren Starling

Wren Starling provided photo reference of herself, and requested to be drawn as a bird person. I went and picked her nickname as inspiration.

You can find her online at wrenstarling.dreamwidth.org

Jewel Thief

“When I was a kid, we could still shoot them,” the cop said.

Mira just gave a noncommittal hum and continued her work.

“Thieving little bastards.”

This case was about a diamond bracelet, but still, it was a generalisation.

“I mean, they’re pests, everybody knows that. No matter how smart they are. Eat songbird chicks.”

The magpie struggled as Mira transferred it from the big trap to a smaller transport box. Neither agreeing nor arguing worked as she’d intended; the cop calmed down and got back to business, adsressing the bird.

“You are being arrested on suspicion of grand theft. A lawyer will be provided to you, given that it’s unlikely you have one.”

Mira chuckled. His half irritated, half worried look she answered with, “Close enough to by the book if you ask me. No complaints.”

“Good. Thanks for your help. I just hope we got the right one this time.”

Inspired by the prompts "A species of animal is ruled legally sapient and subject to protection - and prosecution - under human law" by Herm Baskerville and "The magpie in the tree" by TJK
