Today I got my shipment of awesome pigeon buttons! I'll be leaving them around the city in coffee shops and hopefully galleries. Come out to first friday this week and I'll be handing them out there as well. If you're looking to get some buttons made yourself check out the Philadelphia based button maker Mike Wall. He does a great job at fair prices.
For my final project in my thesis class I decided to do a mock piece for Philly Beer Week. I wanted to keep it bright and lighthearted, and of course had to change the people into pigeons. Thanks to the advice of a professor I have been trying out brown and sepia inks in my recent pieces and have been very happy with the results.
