Pigeon Harpy

Pigeon Harpy Illustration

Before I started this illustration, all I knew about harpies was that they were monsters with women’s heads and birds’ bodies. Now I know that a city pigeon harpy makes a lot of sense. According to Wikipedia, harpies “steal food from their victims while they are eating…” and “Their name means ‘snatchers’.”


Illustration Friday: “Perspective”

From the perspective of some cast-off possessions. No, this is drawn from my own perspective, because I have recently cured myself of the habit of furnishing, entertaining, and even clothing myself with things dumped on the sidewalk or in building lobbies. Still, they call out and whimper at me whenever I pass them on the street. Especially the old radios, because I still own a whole pile of cassette tapes…

Hmm, on second look I’m not happy with the colors, especially on the office chair. Any suggestions?
