Featherbrain is a light and airy illustration homage to renowned bird illustrator and general purveyor of silliness; Edward Lear. Translating a few of his iconic bird illustration into female form, the colourful splendour is mirrored in each with the accompanying bird. Yet while the protagonists are stunning there is a certain reluctant beauty and distraction and bashfulness about them, not wanting to meet the observer’s gaze.
