C. A. Seaman “Stanley Starling of the Air Museum” Coloured pencil on watercolour paper 9″ X 12″
Stanley Starling of the Air Museum. This character is based upon the bird that found itself inside the National Air Force Museum just before Christmas last year. I actually caught him for a minute, but he wriggled out of my hands. I’ve never held a bird before and found the experience to be amazing.
In the end, he was caught and taken outside to enjoy the holidays in freedom. I wrote a story inspired by the incident and will self-publish it when I find time to do the illustrations.
