Birdhouse

 |  August 9, 2006

This panel had been through countless reincarnations. It was originally a landscape of a foggy mountain with trees! But I just couldn’t get it to work. I decided to use one of my “botched up” polaroid transfers that I made a while back of one of the bird houses in my backyard.

I love the look and aged feel of polaroid transfers, but they can be tricky at times to get them to come out clear. You don’t want them too clear because then what’s the point of the transfer? But you don’t want a blurred out mess. This one was kind of in between. But I thought it was still so interesting looking that I have kept it around, waiting for it to find its way into one of my panels.

I really liked how the panel turned out with the polaroid transfer. The only problem was that I knew that it was a birdhouse…but would anyone else? The transfer was not very clear, so I wasn’t sure

So I decided to draw a little bird inside.
