Day 108: A Parrot at the Airport
Yesterday I spent the day in airports, travelling down to Florida to visit my folks. Since there's a lot of hanging around at the airport, it's an ideal place to doodle. This pen and ink drawing is based on a watercolor by an artist named Anna Heyward Taylor. My friend Felicia, an alum of the University of South Carolina, gave me a newsletter announcing the publication of a book about this "South Carolina Artist and World Traveler." Taylor lived from 1879 to 1956, and did paintings, drawings, woodblocks, and book cover design. I tore this scrap from the newsletter, and it seemed appropriate that I do a sketch based on her art, as I headed south.
