Being a Pigeon

November 2007

My friend Matt had an idea for putting the best bits of our conversations into the mouths of pigeons. I would draw the pigeons and he would do the rest and in the end we would have a web-comic experiment on our hands. So I set about our drawing comic pigeons. The first thing I tried was drawing on my new graphics tablet. I discovered there is such a thing as a pink pigeon, which sounds delightful. Unfortunately when I drew it, the pigeon looked weary and sickly. It is funny how drawings can take on a direction of their own sometimes. Then I thought I would try drawing with my new style of heavy cross hatching. The result was not quite comical enough. Matt and I agreed that although it was pretty we could not imagine it talking. It was a personality free pigeon and that is no good to us.
