April Ducks Art Series

April Ducks 1 – 3

I spent a month drawing ducks.

With May finally being upon us, I am happy to share that I have now completed a very, very silly challenge that a few buddies and I made for ourselves for the month of April. The challenge was to illustrate as many ducks (of varying degrees of quality) as reasonably possible between April 1st and April 30th.

Did I mention we had prescribed themes for each duck? We had prescribed themes for each duck.

Wouldn’t you believe it, I made it all the way to 22! That’s one for every weekday this April, so I’m quite pleased with myself. Some are certainly of higher quality than others, but all in all, 22 ducks in one month is nothing to sneeze at.

Can ducks sneeze? Intuitively I question whether they can.

Deciding on a plan on how to release these duck depictions (duckpictions?) has been a bit of a challenge. Releasing 22 ducks one at a time puts this space at a high risk of being “that blog with all the ducks”, but considering that each one of these illustrations took between 2-3 hours to make, I couldn’t justify spending upwards of 50 hours on a single blog post.

Here’s my solution: I’m going to release them in sets of 3 over the next few months, staggered with music and other current projects.

I cannot stress enough how ridiculous this project was, but I had a lovely time.

I quite enjoyed this project, and I hope you enjoy the ducks as they unfurl.

Thanks for visiting! Quack quack!
