The artist stated, “Sometimes, I wish I could return to the freedom of making art as a kid when all I had was a cheap 12-pack of Crayola crayons and some old copy paper.” He would often be absorbed in the details of blending the correct shading or getting the extents of the subject accurate.

The natural colours were only a suggestion to remind that realism and form weren’t the focuses. The focus was the imagination.

“The Yellow and Black Broadbill feel like a bird I might have dreamed up back then. I mean, how else does nature come up with a tiny bird with a pink body, black and yellow wings, bright yellow eyes, and an aqua beak – Clearly, Mother Nature was running low on crayon colors that day.”

Southeast Asia is the habitat of these vivid creatures. They can mainly be found in the slopes and marsh backwoods of Thailand, Indonesia and bordering nations. As indicated by the IUCN Red List, these birds are endangered due to loss in habitat to the nearby logging industry. Even though a few territories of habitat are included in land protection initiatives, there aren’t particular preservation endeavors set up.

The song of these beautiful birds is portrayed as “excessively loud.” It begins adorable enough as a progression of short coos yet rapidly speeds up, pitch, and volume. It’s both entertaining originating from such a little feathered creature and staggeringly irritating.
