He flies through the night, snapping up fruit from trees. Then he sits for a while and lectures on the mythic nature of being a bird. This "Birdmythic" surrounded by (cleared) text frames is based on the South American "oilbird," a night-flying fruit eater who resembles the North American nightjar. I've added a lot more feathery display to it, for the sake of myth. Looks a bit Vader-ish in its full face view, but it's harmless. I wouldn't want to myth out on anything.

"Birdmyth" is ink on sketchbook page with some photoshoppery, about 6" x 4", June 28, 2014.
