Intricate Pigeon

I finally finished tracing this little guy for this year’s batch of Christmas cards (drawing and tracing the detailing on Illustrator took the best part of a day).

My vision was to have him in the arms of a little boy/girl, but I’m now contemplating having him as the main character/maybe mirrored holding a ‘Merry Christmas’ sign, or with another bird under some mistletoe...
