The Unforgiven Pigeon by Immy-is-Thinking The Unforgiven Pigeon by Immy-is-Thinking
Includes a line from TheMadMulatto's poem 'Capillary Refill' fav.me/d4sx9z8
"Unforgiven pigeon, you will never be a raven"

A3 paper, colour and graphite pencils, indian ink.

I wanted to mix realism with cartoonish-ness and let it run... things in my head with the science of decay, and emotions of loss. Beech fungus. Cryptococcus infections. Friends who died of AIDs just as I left Yorkshire. Places you can't reach. Longing to be something you're not. Lots of fungus.

I love this combination, the color makes the graphite work stand out even more! The message of the piece is one that speaks to me, as it probably does to many artists, but your illustration of it is fascinating. I admire the thought processes behind tying in the fungus, infections, and the poor disguise of the pigeon. (Though for a pigeon, that would be genius, actually.) May hat is off to you on this one, were I wearing one! ;)

Thank you so much. Yes it would be a smart pigeon. Although you'd have to wonder what happened to the raven it was wearing... :O_o:
