This is my contribution to the ‘Ghosts of Gone Birds’ exhibition. Over 120 artists, writers and musicians have contributed to this project, each choosing an extinct species of bird to represent and commemorate. My bird of choice is the Tahitian Sandpiper, which became extinct in the 19th century.
I should have posted this some time ago, but the file was trapped on a PC that went a bit funny and I still haven’t found time to fix and re-gain access to. But then I remembered every file I’ve ever sent is still happily sat in my Gmail account. I have mixed feelings about this one as I decided to submit an original piece and my lineart doesn’t usually go far enough in my opinion. So I feel it’s a bit rough around the edges, but I was extremely pleased to have been able to lend my hand to such a great project with an honourable conservationist cause.
The exhibition is currently on display at the Rochelle School, Arnold Circus, Shoreditch, London, E2 7ES, until the 23rd of November.
