Embroidered Vintage Photograph | Parrot Head by Julia Walck

I've been finding myself at a lot of tiki bars lately, and got inspired to do an embroidered parrot. What better way than to do a literal parrot head? Jimmy Buffett approved.šŸ¹ 

I actually think the back is kind of cooler than the front. It's cool to see the "behind the scenes" to a piece, especially when it's a tangled mess of thread!

Some work in progress (WIP) photos below.

If You Give a Bird a Peanut by Julia Walck

This is Bob. I know his name because the worker in the Desert Garden Conservatory feeds him peanuts on the daily and calls him over using his first name.

Bob is a Scrub-Jay. These birds have such distinct colors about them... their white necks, and deep, azure blue feathers are beautiful. 

I snapped this shot of Bob pre-peanut snack. He was being a bit of a ham posing for the camera, I just had to draw him!
