Dodo

Dec 2020 – linoprint by julia Cuyler

My friend David passed away and I did not know it. I found out recently that he had crossed over three years ago. He loved dodos. Then, as synchronicity would have it, I saw a documentary about dodos in the same week I discovered the news of my friend.

I made this after I saw a documentary on the Dodo(s). I always thought I would emphasize the beak as the stand out feature of the dodo. But, as it turns out, the truly significant element is the bottom. Nevertheless, the pronounced beak and the tiny wings are remarkable, as well.

Now, my first dodo complete, I found it really expressing a singular personality. I hope to meet another dodo along the art path. I wonder what it will be like?
