This surreal illustration was for the collection of poems by Ted Hughes. The inspiration (as usual) came from the imagery from the poem. The body of the bird is made up of tongues to describe the main motion of a plaintiff. The roots that embody most of my work, is not only a personal visual signature, but also act as an anchor. The bird's body is in motion, an oxymoron to it's immobility.
