Sweet Crane Babies

I started these four panels quite suddenly, in a mad frenzy of activity, and finished all four in less than a week. It must be some kind of record for me.

A Herd of Cranes

As my friend helpfully informed me, a group of cranes is called a 'herd.' Just finished these up today, and I'm very pleased with the result. It truly tested my self-restraint to let them float in space, rather than filling nearly every bit of wood.

Paper Cranes

Paper cranes, drawn on paper, scanned into a computer, blown up, printed, cutout, re-arranged, and drawn out again (by hand, because carbon paper doesn't work on lacquered panel). Evan wasn't convinced that all this fuss was easier than just winging it, but IT REALLY WAS.
