About the birds and the bees: I by l-zee About the birds and the bees: I by l-zee
The song The Birds and the Bees by Jewel Akens which got stuck in my head ages ago, from an ad (I only remember the tune and a car for some reason). Not sure if I'm allowed to place the lyrics in there though :/

This was my initial response to the Valentine exchange, something light and easy. It seems so much better to step away from all the drama/tension which is what (I hope) I did here. There's a related sketch [link] I didn't manage to finish along these lines too, and it looks like I won't be able to complete it anytime soon

Beside the lettering, the whole thing was done in black and white pens, and coloring pencils - something I haven't done in years. Nice to try old technique again, even if I've gotten worse at it. I tend to go with a cartoony style whenever I do use coloring pencils which is why the animals were just made up/stylized rather than realistic (also couldn't resist putting hearts on the feathers)

First try at using white gel pen too (very weird) - Zee

ps. This ain't a very valentines Valentine. I can't even think of any related lines to go with this that are good, but well

:D glad you liked this
I do wonder when you first heard the song? I've only heard from people who've watched the ad, and it'd be nice to know where else it'd been played

Online Radio by the name of Pandora, It has a habit of introducing me to the less well known songs that have no reason to be less than popular.
