Fripper bird

Imaginary bird (illustration) series

Fripper bird comes from some early experiments I did in After Effects. I drew this bird after watching the large Black Swans at the Botanic Gardens. I love the gentle little ‘trumpetty’ sounds that Swans make as they are muttering around nibbling in the grass.

With these thoughts in mind I tried a very minor animation to bring the Fripper to life. The bird sounds aren’t actual Black Swan sounds, though I felt they suit the imaginary Fripper bird.
