It was a quick process. I had to jump at the time opportunity and just do it!! Quick sketch ups of a long time idea that had been stalking around in my head.
I live in Africa (have never set foot on USA soil but you don’t have to these days to be able to see what goes on there) A bird that is all over my City is the Hadeda. I love Johannesburg – I believe it was the crime capital of the world at one time – but it also is a very big forest with amazing birds. My blog needs to look African and more specifically Jozi! (the City’s hip name said ‘jor-zee’) So my blog needs to look like me living and experiencing my creativity in Jozi. Enter the Hadeda from the right - eradicators of the worst bugs Park Town Prawns so they are my heroes. The least I say about those bugs the better.
Hadeda’s have the worst loud squawk and are known as the city’s sunrise alarm clocks. They are from the family of the sacred ibis. These birds and similar do live in other parts of the world (ie South American states – they have a iridescent red type). Here in Jozi ours are an iridescent dark grey that reflect purple, blue and green in the sun.
Three to choose from but I think I will use them all in time.
