Pair A Birds

Orson and Melba in the Field of Marshmallows

Tabitha from The Pair A Birds makes fun pieces of art rooted in an illustrative style. Compositionally, her works are strong and provide a unique point of view. ¬†And there is definitely a certain sweetness to her pieces. In her shop, you’ll find small drawings, prints, and original paintings. In addition to being an artist, this Chicago-based artist runs another shop, Pairadactyl, and she also has a blog.

Haha Tabitha. You beat me to it.


That is a good question Natalie. Maybe Tabitha will see this and respond.

Personally, I think economy of line is more interesting than overworked surfaces.


Thanks for the feature.
As to where my inspiration comes from… I love the look of clean, simple contemporary design.

I think every mark and line should play an important part in telling the story. Sometimes to get a message across only a few lines are needed.
