This weeks topic over at Illustration Friday is Brave. I’ve had this idea in my head for a couple weeks so that prompt finally encouraged me to get it on canvas. Here’s a courageous bird sailing out to sea on the very top of the boat.

The more I thought about ‘brave” I came to the realization that putting yourself out there is one thing. However, the true test of bravery is the ability to keep your spirits and your head held high even when those unexplored waters turn rough.

Prints of “Brave bird” are now available for sale in my etsy shop.


  1. Such a true sentiment! I love all the wonderful colors and textures in this piece, it has so much energy and fun!
