'Pigeons'
Ink, acrylic, pencil, collage

London pigeons are miserable - diseased, filthy, deformed by the pollution, the unnatural diet, the monstrous unnaturalness of their environment. London people have an ambivalent relationship with the pigeons they share a city with - they hate these wretched creatures - but recognise that there is sense of kinship.
