small shoot

Any kind of crafted bird gets me laughing ever since Portlandia's "put a bird on it" skit. Regardless of the perhaps over-birded design scene, I was inspired by my daughter's above drawing and couldn't pass up a chance to make a large newspaper version as a prop for our Wilderness Queens shoot for the 17th issue of Small magazine.

I love the collaborative work I get to do with Christine and Steven, we had a great time making this one happen.
