The inspiration for this project came from the materials I used.
I was flipping through a home furnishings catalog when I saw the pattern in the top right corner of this piece.
I was instantly drawn to it, and for some reason it made me think.

Starting with that piece, I began building an illustration of a peacock. I scoured my magazines and junkmail pile for various blues and greens for a few weeks until I was able to complete it. The finishing touch was to add a thick black outline using a sharpie.

What a cool idea, it'd make a lovely stained glass pattern with a couple of adjustments too.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
