Metal Marabou

A few nights ago, Chris and I were watching a nature show about some of the ugliest creatures on the planet.  Among the many ugly creatures was the Marabou stork.  They look like a cross between a vulture and a stork – only a few fuzzy hairs on their wrinkled, spotted heads and necks, long, awkward seeming legs, and a tendency to scavenge for a lot of their food.  When I saw one of them perched on one leg and hunched over I was inspired to create this drawing.

I’ve also recently developed an interest in steampunk art and design. I don’t know much about it, but I’ve seen some amazing sculpture and illustration work that has left me feeling a bit inspired.
