Re: Hawaiian i'iwi


I've seen this beautiful bird many times while doing work in Hawai'i. One of the coolest sounding, and coolest looking of the native birds. They really do have a bill like this, and can curve like that on the native flora. I added plumeria blossoms, even though they are not native, but because they are so Hawai'ian.

You stayed right on topic with this shirt, but I think thats why I like it. It doesn't need any silly puns or comical aspects to make it work. Its just a great design. I like how you've got the bird perched on the flowers also. And wow I just looked the bird up on google images, and you did a fantastic job representing it, from the beak to the colors. You're lucky for having a job that lets you see birds like that

I only get to go out every 2 or so years, and yes, I'm blessed to have seen some of them up close. It's a shame that many of them are endangered and clinging to existence.

Here's a good site for songs and pics of them.

Nice. I like the detail of the birds tail feathers in outline only. I'd wear this. gl

Thanks! It needed to be darker than just the shirt, but I didn't want to add a color. The shading was kind of to be somewhere in between. Got rid of the dreaded 7th color problem.
