perched rooster poster
If you've never been to Tampa, then you probably don't know about the chickens that live on the streets of Ybor City, the historic Cuban neighborhood downtown. They are, I don't know, feral gutter chickens that roost in the oak trees of the local park and run around the streets during the day. They are protected by a bird sanctuary ordinance, and I have to say, what a life that must be for a free-roaming urban chicken! This one was in a flock crossing an old railroad track.
The original rooster drawing is made with pen and ink. It will always firmly live in my book, but I can share it with you now as a digitally printed reproduction from a scan. This print is not archival and measures 11" wide by 14" tall.
