The Sturkling Diaries Comic Strip

Hello everyone! Just found this site and really impressed with the artwork I have seen so far. Just love wildlife and wildlife art. Thought I'd add into the mix with my own attempts. It's a comic strip about my made up birds 'Sturklings'. They live on the fictional Urkney Isles, are well organised and have their own 'Urk' language. There are profiles of all the main characters on my Google site along with tips on how to speak Urkish.
Hope you enjoy.
