  •   ciquah She is so lovely isn't she? I love the pale green color on the side of her head. The males are so flamboyant that I think we sometimes miss the beauty of the pale pastel colors in the females. 1w
  •   ciquah @mitchard1990 Did you see this one Buddy? I think she is so pretty! 1w
  •   mitchard1990 She's so pretty!! Her colors are so subtle but so pretty! 1w
  •   ciquah I never even realized how pretty the females are until I was lucky enough to get this shot. @mitchard1990 1w
  •   leighmeyer10 I love her colors! I was going to ask if she's a different kind of quail, so often We get the shades of brown ones. Clearly I don't know anything about quail haha. 1w
  •   ciquah I was obviously pretty clueless as well! @leighmeyer10 1w

insta_information_lady Gambel's Quail
The Gambel's quail is a small ground-dwelling bird. It inhabits the desert regions of Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Texas, and Sonora; also New Mexico-border Chihuahua and the Colorado River region of Baja California. The Gambel's quail is named in honor of William Gambel, a 19th-century naturalist and explorer of the Southwestern United States. These birds seem to go for morning and evening "family walks", as a human family might do. Their eggs are cream colored with brown speckles. They neat in either trees or on the ground under piles. #birdseries #quail #gambelsquail #instainformationlady

endotron11 JUST FINISHED THE LAST PAGE (of illustrating A New Home for the Q's by Yasmin Thorpe)!
Whew! Now to go over them all, make sure the characters are consistent, do some touch ups, and call it a wrap!

endotron11 I have one and three-quarters of a page to go before I can call this project 'done'. Thought I'd show you the latest: Queenie and Quinn meet Sasha. #illustration #byme #endrene 2mon

endotron11 The illustrations are piling up! Five to go, and the book goes for design / edit at the end of the month. I'm getting a bit tired of the project, but now's no time to quit! And I do still love the characters... 2mon
  •   koijiro I love your lovely touch! And it's a little similar to my fav Japanese cartoonist Osamu Tezuka...^^ 2mon
  •   roland_ranch Wow, this looks like my yard. What beautiful art. I hope I can get a copy. Please keep me posted when it gets published. 2mon
  •   endotron11 @rabbitspinner I think the real secret to making a success of it is to illustrate your OWN kids book-- it makes you more attractive to the publishers (you're a complete package!) and you get creative control over every aspect of the project. I have 3 more books to do for other authors, and then I'm FINALLY going to start my own project... I already have a story in mind! 2mon
  •   endotron11 @koijiro how kind of you to say! I love Osamu Tezuka's style! 2mon
  •   endotron11 @roland_ranch you bet! And I'll be looking at photos from your feed for inspiration! :) I'm planning ongoing to the Phoenix Book Fair next March with the author to launch the book in Arizona, but I'm pretty sure I can connect you with a copy sooner than that. :) 2mon
  •   roland_ranch My boys did this blog a while back. It has some desert photos that might inspire. :) http://rolandbrothers.wordpress.com/ 2mon
  •   roland_ranch Will you be in Tucson? 2mon
  •   roland_ranch I just look through several of your photos of this project. .. I think I may have to purchase a book just to take apart and frame every illustration... you have captured the desert so beautifully. 2mon
