Here are a few color sketches for my "Bird Songs" series. I have big plans to convert several small, vintage transistor radios into little song birds. I fell in love with these 1950's-60's radios upon first sight. Each has such a strong sense of design - each color, each line is so distinctive. They just don't make them like they used to! I felt inspired to showcase them in some way.
Perhaps the "Bird Songs" series is a commentary on the LA music industry's transformation into a relic -but like these little radios, the songs from Hollywood's heyday still sing true. Or perhaps it's just an opportunity to show off these beautifully designed, but often forgotten pieces of our collective cultural history.
and had loads of fun sharing a table with Kyle and Joe. Thanks guys!
