I also made a big poster for the Summer Carnival. Same girl as the cover but full body this time so you can see her feathered costume better. There's a lot of these blue/green parrots living in Rotterdam. Nobody really knows where they came from. They assume they're escaped pets that managed to find a way to survive in the city.
Non the less, it's nice to see these tropical birds flying around the city between all the brown and grey native birds and I thought it was a very nice metaphor for the Summer carnival in Rotterdam, so I wanted to do something with the parrots in the illustration. I ended up making a crazy bird costume for the pin-up girl poster.
