“While waiting on the platform for your subway train, quietly stand right behind an unsuspecting pigeon. As the train pulls into the station, give the bird a good heave-ho onto the tracks.”

This is a collage/drawing I did for the book, Canceled Flight: 101 Tried and True Pigeon Killin’ Methods. Don’t worry, it was a vehicle for artists, not really a manual for the destruction of flying rats.

Although, people didn’t always get the joke. The author received hate mail from protestors who hadn’t even seen the book. And, one Barnes and Noble fanned the flames by accidently putting it in the kids’ section. Oops.

I felt honored just to be published in the company of some of my favorite artists, including kozyndan and Ryan McGinness. But then, the original artwork from the book was exhibited in a travelling gallery show.
