As a self confessed bird nerd I loved recreating the cover of this classic Aussie book using an off screen approach. I chose the male gang gang cockatoo as it is a personal favourite and also one of the lesser known cockatoos in Australia. They have a striking red crest and a very unique call that sounds like a creaky door. I created the bird out of paper to give it a natural feel and used a vintage colour palette that references the 1930’s when the book was first published.
