April Ducks Art Series

April Ducks 11-13

Did you miss them? Wait – don’t answer that. In the month of April, I challenged myself to draw as many ducks as I could. I ended up drawing a total of 22, and this is part of the slow duck rollout. I’m not sure when I’ll be out of ducks, but if it helps, we’ve now crossed the halfway point.

Even though they’re goofy, and not terribly well-crafted, they still make me happy.

Geo-duck, because I didn’t want to draw that unpleasant mollusc.

Sometimes artists put a lot of pressure on ourselves to make marketable work. When you make a living off of your creations, it can feel like an act of defiance to create something for the sole purpose of entertainment. And while of course I am just as much a fan of money as the next duck enthusiast, making these ducks felt.. important somehow.

“IT HAPPENED AGAIN! PSYYYAIYAAAI!”

I’ve been working on a few projects lately that have been important.. Learning challenging songs outside of my comfort zone for students, fulfilling commissions, completing a proposal for a PhD program that I may or may not be accepted into..

Flying! Get it? Because ducks have wings, why would he be flying a plane? Silly duck!

It makes me happy that I have the privilege to dedicate a little time to creating something silly for myself, something that I know has no possibility for failure.

Thanks so much for visiting!
