'Bellena Belle and the Birds' by Mike Nelson

Artist Mike Nelson used family as inspiration for this series, titled "Bellena Belle and the Birds." Nelson's grandmother had a love for birds, and in this series the birds, along with his grandmother, come to life in sketches.

The anthropomorphic depictions of each of the birds gives Mike Nelson room to create a much more interesting series than with realistic sketches. The birds really come alive and it seems the birds could speak at any moment.
