These cheeky little chappies manifested after a very random trip to a Sea Pets store with my buddy Emma. For some reason I was totally captivated by them. Id never really paid much attention to Budgerigars, until this point. Apart from them being incredibly stunning, they are absolutely hilarious to watch! They seem to all have their own quickie individual characters, event expressions. In an odd way, I think I just about capture that in the strange expressions on their faces.
I also started to find them humerous the moment my Mum announced she once owned a budgie called "Suzie" and this could be the reason she call me "Susan". Its always good to know your name came from something original(odd) I suppose.
So.... this little beaut was lovingly hand screenprinted at East London Printmaker, based in Hackney. Its a two layer print with a yellow, to blue, to white blend running through it. Naturally, with any blend, each print in ever so slightly different from the next, making your print pretty much unique.
Happy printing people.
