This sketchbook drawing of stylised imaginary bird was conceived as a sort of iconic or heraldic signifier. I imagined it in my mind’s eye featuring in an old book illustration, tapestry or in a stained-glass window. Based on the red colourway of an earlier dragon doodle, I wanted to explore the creative possibilities in using only a singe key colour.
