This little number is similar to something I created a few months ago. It's the sequel.
In the original drawing, the birds are flying out of a birdcage. Since I was drawing this version as a gift for my friend's one-year-old, I thought a cage seemed a little...not-kid-friendly, you know? So I went with an egg and nest instead. It seemed a little more appropriate - to think of this little baby bird that has hatched and is learning to stretch her wings out...and I'm sure she will soar.
