Pigeon-man

I made a pigeon head this week.
It was intended for my video art final project, but now I think it was just an excuse to make a gigantic bird head. Looks good when you wear it though. Here are stills from the project.
The project I originally had in mind was gonna be this epic part live-action part animation thing, with nightmare sequences and dead pigeons dropping all over the place. There was gonna be this part where this pigeon gets pierced to death by seeds. Alas, I think my vision was just too grandiose. Oh well.

When I was a kid, my grandfather used to raise pigeons in our backyard. Every few weeks or so, my grandma would wrangle a pigeon from the coop, kill it, and cook it for dinner. I used to stand there and watch pigeons dangling from the doorknob for years. I guess blatant animal cruelty wasn't a big issue in my family.

Very nice.

And what a handsome pigeon, if I do say so myself.
