Little red bird by Fluro-Knife Little red bird by Fluro-Knife
We all have a little red bird inside us. Some people, like me, lock their little bird away so nothing can harm it. But It's best to let that little bird fly.

A bird that hasn't flown hasn't lived.


just some venty stuff

This touches me, and makes me think about my little red bird inside of me. I've dealt with so much loss in the last year that my bird refuses to spread it's wings and fly. But I have to say, that this piece inspires me to no end. And reminds me of all the things I can and have done. I really thank you for making such wonderful art. Your style is very unique and interesting.

Some birds clip their own wings, and see that far too many birds have flown before. "Perhaps," they say to themselves, "a life underground in the dirt and mould and decay would be far more interesting. So many birds have flown before, why should I join them when I could be the first to rot beneath the soil?"

I like it. Have you read 'The Red Tree' by Shaun Tan? The red bird reminds me of the red leaf... :)

Let it fly, it doesn't matter if it can find treasure or anything else as long as you can feel the joy of creation.

That is so cute! I love the idea of the little red bird. I also like the way she's naked, but not in a bad way. It's like she's totally innocent and naive. Beautiful!

I really dig the symbolism. It's a cute but powerful way to represent this sort of thing. Means something and attractive to look at.

And that bird is too cute.
