Pick Me Apart by Kanjimaru67 Pick Me Apart by Kanjimaru67
This is something from my Moleskine sketchbook.

For whatever reason, I've always identified with sparrows. They may seem rather common, but there's something remarkable about them---to me at least. They're brave, often to the point of stupidity, taking on much bigger birds and protecting their nests to the death. So in this, I am the sparrow and the grackle ripping out heartstrings on the left is, well, somebody else.

Materials: Tea, colored pencils, pen, white ink, red felt, red thread.
(And yes, I did literally sew the heart into the page ;).)

Sorry that this is a little blurry. I think my scanner is on its way out...

EDIT: Oh my gosh! A thousand favorites in under 24 hours? Thank you so much for your attention and comments!

This reminds me of the album cover for "Transatlanticism"

A lot of people have been saying that, actually. However, I hadn't heard of Death Cab for Cutie until after I made this! :) Well, I guess there's only so much originality left in the world.
