Holiday Homes - Illustrated Bird Box

Drawn in Bristol have their Summer exhibition coming up.

It's called Holiday Homes and is a celebration of the humble bird box. With a portion of the sales going to the incredible work of St Mungo's Broadway - a charity helping people recover from the issues that create homelessness - buyers can feel extra positive about dipping into their wallets to purchase one of the 30 illustrated bird boxes that will be on display inside Bristol's No1 Harbourside bar.

Being a bit of an enthusiast for bird life, I opted to transform my bird box into a keen bird-loving character, on an ornithological mission. Clutching a pair of binoculars, I thought it would be comical to have have this surprised "twitcher" not only have a few cheeky birds perched just out of his eye line, but also to have them potentially popping in or out of his own mouth.

The bird box has a nifty hanging fitting at the back and is sealed for all manner of weathers, but equally might simply make for a quirky bit of indoor artwork.

For more information about the launch evening on 12 June and to spy updates of other bird boxes, simply follow this link. The exhibition continues til 21 June.
