#BirdWhisperer Project

The Bird Whisperer Project was an idea hatched by Amanda Makepeace and Melissa Gay. Each month several artists from around the world create new artwork from the same reference photo and share it online with #BirdWhisperer. Each artist is free to interpret the source material in their own unique voice. Please visit the Bird Whisperer Project to see all the artists' work and the reference photographs.
