More Fly Art – Peter Strid

I just found another artist specializing in flies. I love these people who can make the flies I tie look so great on paper, canvas or any other medium. The artist is Peter Strid and you can find his growing collection of flies posted on his blog at http://stridart.blogspot.com/p/about.html. Keep up the great work, and hopefully we can feature some more of this great artwork in the future.

Here are a couple of my favorites so far.

Drawing Flies 365 in action

Jeff from Drawing Flies 365 just posted a great video that outlines his process. Take a couple minutes to watch the video and try your hand at this. I do doodle a lot of flies, but they never have the same appeal Jeff brings to the paper. Drawing flies in getting close to completion, but I know Jeff has some other ideas that we can all relate to coming down the pipeline and hopefully we’ll see Brook make an appearance soon. Check out Jeff drawing Winter’s Hope.
