Magic Portal Repair
This whole piece started with the bird. Yes, the little bird with the red head sitting on her knee. Those birds are everywhere in Hawaii and they all have attitudes. (ed note the Brazilian Red Cap Cardinal)
I wanted that bird to be in a place he did not belong, but was not forced to stay so obviously I needed a magic portal. Ah, but the magic portal was not showing a location the bird wanted to explore and so there was a need for a repairman. In another of those after-the-art-is-done realizations I saw that I ended up channeling my love of Firefly into this piece as well.
Yes, sometimes illustrations are this convoluted, why do you ask?

“In a properly automated and educated world, then, machines may prove to be the true humanizing influence. It may be that machines will do the work that makes life possible and that human beings will do all the other things that make life pleasant and worthwhile ”
