Birds the Word

It's nothing and I'm not especially keen on it, but here's a quick bit o' something;

The map is all about the distribution of flightless birds, and the shifty looking character is an Emu. I don't really know what the circles are, but I just can't seem to get away from them. I like using shapes in my illustrations as they give an image a sort of structure and form, and without them the picture would be pretty boring anyway. Inspired mainly by looking at this little book;

which is one of a series of books that I was given by someone I know who studied biology in the late 70's. The information in the books is antiquated and out of date, but the imagery has that lovely old retro feel about it.
