Inspired by the baffling drawings by M.C. Escher; this street painting transformed into something absurd and delightful.
This started with a photograph I shot of a Pacific Coast Pelican when I was kayaking in in Redondo beach a few years ago.
When it came to me drawing the bird, I started out representing it as it is. But the urge to add teeth became too much for me. Then I just had to give it raptor claws and some feathered arms. Oh and the tail.
The nearest living Dinosaur like bird is probably the Shoebill.
Does this look like a feasible dinosaur? Let me know what you think in the comments.
So it all started when Rand Mintzer bought a couple of my artworks. Aside from being an attorney, he hosts a feel-good podcast called THNX.
