Bird Brain

For my Sunday Sketch I combined a pair of scissors and a drawing to make the head of a bird. I came up with the idea upon noticing that my scissors resembled a bird beak when I opened and closed them. I then promptly decided that this would be my 3D tangible object (I think I must have a fondness for creating things from scissors because this is the 2nd time in a row that I’ve used them in my creation). I laid the scissors down on a piece of paper and played around with the opening of the “beak”, eventually deciding to have it slightly ajar. Then, I traced the rest of the beak and the head of the bird with a pencil, and, once I was satisfied, traced the drawing with black and red permanent marker, which matched the color of the scissors. Once I had the idea, the process was pretty simple (even though I am clearly not an artist). The one difficult part was lining the middle dot on the scissors to where the bird’s eye should be. I think it ended up being a little bit too close to the beak, but all in all I’m pretty happy with the end result.
