Introducing a new speicies of bird, the Shark Bird. These birds came from a day kayaking on Humboldt Bay, no camera only visual memories. From this I did a couple sketches of birds sitting on pilings sticking out of the water. This morphed into what is now the legendary Shark Bird. Only sited in Northern California's Humboldt Bay region no other sitings have been reported anywhere else in the world. Upon further inspection one will note these birds have only one foot, and in some cases many have been seen sporting a "peg leg". Scientists believe the birds fight amongst themselves and sometimes take a bite out of each other so to speak.
This new and unique speices will be making their home at the Ironside Gallery starting Oct 2011, stop by and take a gander.
