Charley Harper Inspired Birds

Inspired by Charley Harper

Charley Harper's bold graphic style 
is a feast for the eyes.
We're so inspired by his 
colorfully geometric birds -
we made a few of our own
smallSHOP style!

Birds by illustrator Charley Harper (1922 - 2007)

First, we practiced drawing in Harper's style -
we used minimal lines to capture 
the essence of each bird's posture
then added playful geometric patterns.

We studied Harper's spot on color choices
and designed our own color schemes 
using watercolor pencil and gouache.
