These images are a part of a greeting card I just finished up for a client. I had originally planned to do the art in a pen & ink style (second image), but did an entire version in a more rendered style (first image. Hey, I just noticed the piping around the cake bottom looks like a little like hot dog links! Not good). I opted for the pen & ink style in the end, though I like the first one as well. It was other parts of the image (not shown) that tipped it towards the latter style. Here's hoping the client is happy. : )

I'm presently working on an emergent reading book which has a few birds in it. The two birds above are a segment pulled from a two-page spread. They aren't main characters here, but placed in the spread to add a little interest. For this particular job, I'm working in pencil for the line work, which is giving it a softer affect.
