“Red-Whiskered Bulbul in Mauritius,” Daniel D. Brown, 2016, Pastel Pencil

My wife and I eloped to South Africa and Mauritius in 2014. One of the most common birds we saw in Mauritius was the red-whiskered bulbul. This particular bird was begging my wife for scraps of an apple she was eating. You can buy prints of this piece here.

“Yoga Bird Pants,” Daniel D. Brown, 2015, Digital

My wife is a part time yoga instructor, so for Christmas this year I designed a pair of avian-themed yoga pants (with yoga “bird” poses included), using Adobe Illustrator. I had them printed through Print All Over Me and I have made my design available for others if you wish to purchase them for yourself. They turned out really nice.
