Sparrow Songs Competing Males

CLIENT: COTTAGE LIFE MAGAZINE

Art Direction by Steven Balaban. This piece was coloured digitally with the ink work rendered by hand. This was used in the Q & A section of the magazine. The question was concerning the male white-throated sparrow song sometimes sounding like it was cut short. One possibility is an interruption by another male bird vying for the same female. Another option, which I prefer, is pure laziness since there might be no other fellas around to complete for the same lady. Sad. This one was inked by hand and colourized digitally. Please see the process below.
