This would have to be one of the oddest blog titles I have written, but odd is good, and so are these illustrations.
The artist (Brian R. William) has basically gone off, found a few dead bird species, and dressed them up in clothes appropriate to the era in which they bit the dust. What inspires such a thing is beyond me, but sometimes the obscure needs no rationale, and slightly anthropomorphised birds tends to fit the bill.
Get it? Bill.
The prints are available for purchase over at his online, electronic, e-store.
