Merry merry King of the Bush. by Lauren Phillips

Merry merry King of the Bush.
by Lauren Phillips

Prompt: Australian Spirit.
prompted by: Kate, during Sketch Fest #22 (January, 2012)

When I saw this prompt I thought 'kookaburra!'. But I was reluctant to try it - I'm not terribly good with birds. This sketchfest has been great, because I think I've kinda pushed myself into drawing more animals - usually not something I'm got at!


Kate says: That's terrific, Lauren! Especially appropriate for me at the moment because I've been enjoying the return of the kookas to our local environment! As someone who is new to drawing birds, I can appreciate the difficulty, and tell you you've done a fantastic job! You've captured the kooka's exuberance! Thanks for choosing my prompt! ~ Reply?

     Lauren Phillips replied to this: Thanks so much! I'm really glad he came out as well as he did. And that I did justice to your prompt! Thanks for putting it up n.n

Sally Gilroy says: I love your Kookaburra! So much expression he fits right into the song :) ~ Reply?

     Lauren Phillips replied to this: Thank you! It's great to know he matches the song. Makes me feel like a kid in primary school, singing this in a group again. Hahaha!
