Fine art illustration of a Taiwan Blue Magpie (Urocissa caerulea.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Taiwan Blue Magpie was completed in the summer of 2015. I was unaware of this species, but saw an amazing photo of one in my Facebook feed. I wanted to draw one after that, and studied several different reference photos before coming up with this pose. Magpies are amazing birds and I will likely be drawing more of them in the next few months.
