The Pigeon during prismatic molting season

For the cover of Carrier Pigeon issue no. 2, ten artists were commissioned for cover images to be screen-printed onto 100 of the 1,000 copies. Mine, below. The only restriction of the assignment was that the carrier pigeon be represented.

I like birds. And the properties of quartz. And prisms. And hieroglyphics. And ancient things and other things that aren't represented in this image at all. Paper and scruff.
