A fantastic article by one of the best avian vets in the country, Dr. Susan Orosz. She’s been my family’s vet for almost 10 years and she’s put together a great piece here!
This article explains why you need a bird vet and also explains early warning signs that your bird is sick. Good information for EVERY level of bird owner!

Dr. O is a personal hero of mine and my budgie’s vet and also the avian vet I’ve had the privilege of shadowing :) She’s amazing and this is an excellent article.
WEYRWORLD by Michael Whelan, cover for All the Weyrs of Pern by Anne McCaffrey.
This is another of my favorite Michael Whelan paintings. I also had this hanging in my room for years and spent countless hours poring over every detail. This one taught me so much about reflected light and texture, and is one of the best examples of sub-surface scattering I found during my formative years as an artist. I have thought about this painting literally every single time I have ever painted light blasting through a dragon’s wing. I hope you guys can appreciate how many times that is.
I think this image is one of the building blocks that makes up my identity as an artist. Michael Whelan would be a cornerstone.
probably my fave pern cover

Faizal is a young hunter and wannabe-explorer that loves flying with his sandskimmer, Firethroat. Sandskimmers live up to their names—they fly long distances without difficulty and they typically keep close to the ground. Young ones often collide into sand dunes when learning how to fly.
I drew my new baby ridgeback and two random dragons today on the stream :’D
