Pigeon English is the name of a Ceilidh Band – they play traditional British folk tunes and we dance. Recently they had an anniversary and I decided it might be good fun to depict the band as pigeons.
I played around on photoshop until each of the pigeon was holding or playing an instrument. The melodeon player was probably the most fun – a lot of resizing, reshapint, turning and twisting of images on seperate layers was needed to create the effect. After printing the images, ensuring they were round the right way – one piece had a backward melodeon and so had to be redone, I then free motion machine embroidered them.
