All the birds of the air fell a-sighing and a-sobbing,

All the birds of the air

fell a-sighing and a-sobbing,

when they heard the bell toll

for poor Cock Robin.

I’ve been working on the final image this week and today I have drawn 17 birds!  The format of this one is A2 landscape so that it can become a double page spread. The other 14 images are A3 portrait and will be a single page with text facing. I’m planning some illuminated lettering for each verse next.

The quality of the images are a bit ropey, I stretched the paper on a board and I’ve only got a cheap A4 scanner and the weather is too wet to go outside in daylight!! Tweet dreams y’all!
