Sneaky for Illustration Friday 

This week's Illustration Friday topic suggested lots of possibilities, but this one seemed liked a simple, clear depiction of the concept of "Sneaky."

My aim was to create a picture in a different style than my usual. While I have done pictures along these lines before, I enjoy the challenge of working completely in colour with minimal linework, although this did begin as a black-and-white sketch on paper. Please click on picture for larger image.

The scenario depicted could very easily occur at Healesville Sanctuary - visitors aren't supposed to feed the birds there and the white ibis can get very aggressive in their demands for food, so it is best not to encourage them!

Hey Ian - thanks so much for swinging by my blog and leaving such a lovely comment :D Your cartoons and comics are rad! This one cracks me up - my husband forever holds a grudge against Ibis for this reason... a cheeky one stole his sandwich when he was a kid hehe!
I love your interpretation of the topic, great illo :)

Thanks, Bee and Veronika, I appreciate your comments.

This illustration doesn't appear to have been popular, so maybe it's a bit of a failed experiment as a departure from my usual style. Actually, the original sketch is pretty strong, so maybe I should've stuck with that :).
