I created an illustration for my friends Ryan and Audrey Durney’s multi-contributor book entitled Birds of Lore. Ryan teamed up with his wife Audrey to create a lavish bestiary of mythological birds. The creature I illustrated is a tiger-bird called a Suea Peek. Ryan described it as a stout, semi-flightless bird beast, with the head of a female tiger. I love how ridicules and fearsome it looks at the same time. I used oil paints over a watercolor underpainting to create the illustration. Ryan’s Birds of Lore book is now out on Amazon and he even produced a Kindle edition.
