Music, music, music... Here is a bird with some electronic power :)

I took the pic and made the sketch as usual. I was sitting outside

of a restaurant in Lisbon, Portugal. Several birds came and moved

from one chair to another hoping to draw my attention to receive

some food (I gave them all my bread). If you wish, you can view

the sketch in progress and some preparatory photos at this link.


PS: Please, visit My SoundCloud page and listen to my music...


>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture:

"A bird blares out music from a boombox around his neck: Ben

begins by taking a picture of an everyday scene then covers part

of the shot with a sketch - transforming the bland backdrops into

intriguing scenarios" (Matt Blake, The Daily Mail, July 2012).


Update: See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera

images in progress (with a small animation and original music).
