I just want to see an Alex in your style. I'm thinking mugs and t-shirts....like, seriously!!

LOL...which list are you using Kiwibird? Wrenches? I would like a female with that male Eclectus please...together they would be a dynamite picture pair! The winners of all prizes...the prettiest of the lot...no other bird could hold a candle to them....they should have been number one on the list
Iím using the list I posted, #10 is still up in the air though. And yes! I am doing a male/female eclectus in one drawing

Yipee...now we just have to get some marketing strategies going. Calendars and blank cards can be done easily at the right print-shop. You just need to choose paper/envelope pkg etc. Schools and other folks are always doing calendars so find a quick contact and we will have calendars as well LOL...

Now, now Jim. It's not fair (but totally understandable) to use a combination of guilt and fear of retaliation to get ones way!

I do have a company I can order fine art prints from Iíve been using for printing the couple commissions Iíve gotten, but thatís all they do. Itíll probably take me some time to figure out how to put my art on anything else and find somewhere that can print something like a shirt and have it be anywhere close to the right colors. While I may be talented at art, I have no mind for business stuff at all. I think Iím a pretty typical artist in that way


There are a bunch of online places that do this kind of stuff. Zazzle.com is the one that comes to mind.

Re: Top 10 most quintessential parrots

If you guys like the cockatiel, you will LOVE the lovebirds! I know I do! It took soooo long to sketch the outline to get them into a heart shape

Re: Top 10 most quintessential parrots

Would you guys say GCCs or Sunnys are more popular? I see both all over in pet shops and on the forum.

Re: Top 10 most quintessential parrots

This is probably my favorite one yet!
I would say probably GCC's? I feel like not as many people can handle the noise of Suns so GCC has this reputation of being quiet(ier)
