Animal Logo Wednesday - Clydesdales and Foxes

I'll do a two-fer today, since I was too busy yesterday to do a Random Illustration. I know how you get.

The horse one is for a clydesdale-based cycling club. Fun fact: The clysedale is second only to the carp in biking skills.

While my wife and kids went to the Tracy Aviary yesterday, I had a bird encounter of my own. I was downstairs when I heard a bang. I thought it was someone slamming the door. I went upstairs but no one was home. I went outside to see if a tree branch fell on the roof. I found my neighbor and his kid, holding a mouse on a string.

My neighbor said sorry that his pet falcon got out and ran into my window. The kids say this bird is a little retarded.

I asked where he was and if he's all right and they pointed up. He was sitting right above me about 8 feet up.

I always thought falcons look like this

But this one had a dazed look more like this:

Wait. More like this:

So, falcons are pretty fast. This one shattered the window. This is the same window we had replaced about 2 months ago. But my neighbor was very cool and he's getting me a new one. He even came over and boarded it up until the window guy comes. And they eventually managed to get the falcon back in his cage.

Random Illustration Tuesday - Shattiger

I submitted my own today. "I want a tiger made out of shattered glass. I want it to be multicolored. I want it to be pronounced ShattIger with the emphasis on the I. It needs to be badass."

Animal Logo Wednesday - Stork

Storks have no syrinx and are mute, giving no call; bill-clattering is an important mode of stork communication at the nest. Also, newspaper and baby delivery are important to them.
