Living Alfred Hitchcock’s Movie “The Birds”
In my last blog post How Would You Draw Your Family? Here is The Family Stew! I introduced you to my new cartoon series called The Family Stew.
I wanted to share with you the moments that led up to drawing this cartoon. As with most cartoons they some what reflect our own real lives. This cartoon is no different, and reflects the day my children and I were attacked by BIRDS.
It reminded me of the Alfred Hitchcock movie The Birds. We were feeding seagulls in Port Charlotte, Florida. I was showing the kids that if you hold the cracker straight up in the air the seagulls will swoop down and take the cracker. My kids were running around screaming having a blast and trying to catch as many of the seagulls as they possibly could.
My mischievous Precious wanted to keep a seagull as a pet. In the cartoon I’ve drawn her grabbing the legs of a seagull and flying away… In some ways this was art reflecting life, she came real close to catching one of the seagulls… We took some pictures and video of our day… I wanted to share that video with you, which I entitled: “THE BIRDS“.
Have you ever seen so many gulls? What do you suppose it is? Has this ever happen to you?
