"Ungainly Grace"

 Ballpoint pen

 Above is a sketch I did a while back from a National Geographic article and have always wanted to share it. 
I'm a sucker for good writing and loved the article written by Mel White. It inspired me to do this little sketch 
and made me look at this unique creature in a different way. Hope it does the same for you. :) 
 "The pelican inspires laughter and wonder, and, maybe even more, a kind of affectionate empathy: After all, who among us hasn't at times felt awkward and unlovely, and yet imagined that - given room to stretch our wings - we just might be beautiful."~Mel White
