H, I, J, K is for...Internet?

So before I start. The past few days I have been fighting with my internet/provider to try and get service back. It has not been fun. This has caused me to miss a few days of A-Z and not get around to see all of you. Instead of just losing those days I am going to at least post the pictures I drew.

H is for Hummingbird

I is for Ibis

J is for Jellyfish

K is for Kingfisher

Fun Fact: While some Kingfishers use tree hollows, others actually nest in tunnels they dig in the ground. Their tunnels can be as long as 26 feet with their nest at the end. Both male and female birds incubate their eggs which can hatch in 3 to 4 weeks.

See you guys Monday for our regularly scheduled program.


  1. Sorry about your Internet. No worries - you're caught up now.
    The last one is really well done.
    But the jellyfish one made me chuckle!

  2. How frustrating with the internet thing! But glad you got it worked out. It would have been sad to miss those pictures - especially the jelly fish one. Cute :)

  3. I'm glad you let us see the pictures we missed. I'm with the other guys: I love the jellyfish one. I love the facial expressions! You're so talented, Brandon.

    See you Monday!

  4. I chose ibis as well. Great minds think alike. Sorry you lost your internet connection. Loved the hummingbird pix. Funny.

  5. Aw man! I hate it when that happens. At least you weren't idle and got a lot of work done. The Kingfisher is awesome, I love the colors on that bird.

  6. Welcome back...not much one can do when the ole provider decides not to provide. Fun stuff for I thru J, and I agree with others....the Jellyfish drawing is extra fun and a great rendition of most everyone's reaction to a flotsam of those beautiful but dangerous creatures. Congrats for catching up and making it through Week #2. Thanks for your visits and comments on my AtoZ 'fiction from forgotten fotos'.

  7. I hate when the internet get wonky! Glad you have it back...

    Your drawings are DELIGHTFUL!

    Enjoy the rest of you weekend, Brandon.

  8. Although I can't get the Hummingbird picture, and the Kingfisher is really nice, I love Jellyfish the most!

    Glad your issues cleared up.

  9. These are really awesome! Glad you got Internet back and we get to enjoy your work :D
    Now back to your regular scheduled program lol too cool for drools...(I don't know...I felt like rhyming o_0)

  10. Great sketches! Sorry about your internet woes--glad to see you back!

  11. Sorry about your internet. Love the sketches, especially the Ibis with a dragon riding on his back. :)

  12. Ugghh. The internet.

    All of the drawings are great, but the kingfisher is OUTSTANDING. I particularly like the bold colors. Really, really nice.

    I didn't know that they tunneled into the ground to make their nest. I am learning all sorts of interesting stuff here.

  13. Welcome back, Brandon! I was worried you dropped out! Nice to see that you're back online and moving forward :)

  14. Good job catching up. I'm glad you shared these! I love the jellyfish the most, but all of them are great!

  15. Another fun fact about the Kingfisher.... they don't really fish all that well! :P Sorry I've been so bad at keeping up on commenting.... I've been enjoying the posts though!

  17. Sorry to hear about your internet--I've come across more people having issues. Maybe the A-to-Z is making ISPs all over the world collapse? ;) Glad you're back online, though! And that kingfisher pic is fantastic!

  18. Ugh...what a time to lose internet service! I hear you there, my connection has been a lot slower and less reliable lately and has gone out for days at a time in the past. Glad you're back online and all caught up.

  19. I know a guy in Jersey that could have a "talk" with your internet provider, should the need arise:) I love these whimsical drawings, especially the hummingbird *who knew they were so fierce*

  20. Great drawings! Glad you got your problems with the 'net straightened out!

  21. Internet problems can be so frustrating! Hope everything gets straightened out. Nice sketches! I especially like the Kingfisher.

  22. Internet ...

    Glad you're sticking with the challenge! For some reason I laugh when I think of jellyfish. :)

  23. Your artwork is wonderful. The character of each letter animal is so artistically portrayed.
