Migration Myths

So I was asked to be part of Spoonful Zine issue 6 and the brief was to create an illustration of a hummingbird. Not knowing all that much about humming birds I did a little research and found a really funny myth about their migration patterns. For some reason people had trouble believing these tiny birds could migrate unassisted and therefore came up with the theory that they hitchhiked a ride on the backs of geese.
This is completely untrue but the idea made me laugh so I tried to create a kind of retro travel poster for hummingbirds. Hope you like it!! You can check out the zine at just by clicking on the neat little round button below :)
