AW Cockies, turquoise: A series of Sulphur Crested Cockatoos transformed and repeated on a multicolored cross-hatched canvas, after Andy Warhol. My entry in the Australian Animals Contest (came 27th out of 175: so pleased - and THANK YOU to all who voted!).

The original photograph, 'Cockie cute', that these transformations are based on can be seen here. A version that opens and closes with blues can be seen here, and a much more subdued and subtle version is here.

Thanks a lot Penny, and I like your idea of this as sun room cushions a lot too - thanks for that!

Gorgeous design Su, I can picture this as cushions in a sun room or patio
Belated thanks for your feedback Clare - and thanks so much, that means a lot coming from the artist who gave us 'Seurat's cats'... (http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/1759365 for those interested)

Nice and bright! Printed on cotton poplin @ 300 ppi (daylight photo).

This is gorgeous. I just love that pop-art effect.
Thanks for the comments Vo, Angela and Pat - much appreciated!
Fun and modern.
Thanks so much for the great feedback Pat, Patricia, Emma and Angel; and all the fantastic ideas for how to use this in fabric. Sue Ellen I loved your "don't stop at cushions and curtains!" and for that extensive list of ideas (I'm going to turn it into a checklist of potential uses for future reference - so handy!). Susan, I did as you suggested and I agree, red stripes and border and it will be a scarf (will include in my next proofs to see if we're right, husband likes the idea too - altho' he wants to hang it on the wall!). And Aldea: thanks so much for sharing your cockatoo photos, a couple of great ones there, and thanks too for the tote bag idea and pattern, I'm definitely going to work on that as I could resize the design to fit perfectly (which doing the mockups showed me I need to do!). Thanks again everyone: made my day!!!
Very eye-catching and fun! Love the colors :)
This is so cool Su! I think it would make a fantastic tote bag as well - just saw this pattern yesterday: http://www.craftpassion.com/2012/08/reversible-jumbo-tote-bag.html
I have been to Australia once and visited a park where there were lots of cockatoos. Not sure if you're supposed to do this but they were handing out feed and they would feed out of people's hands. I posted a couple photos on flickr.
So much fun......and really eye catching.....love it! Good luck with the competition : )
Look at the cushion mockup and tell me you shouldn't make the white stripes red and add a red border and make a cdc scarf!
Oh, don't stop at cushions and curtains! There's quilts and shower curtains, and kitchen backsplashes, and room borders and cloth rugs; custom plate and mug sets, placemats and tablecloths, edging for toweling (I'd say a whole tea towel, except I find the totally printed ones don't dry the dishes well), and banners; beach bags, knitting bags, & tote bags; waste paper baskets, and tea trays; not to mention T-shirts and surfer jams. Both of these two bright colorways of AW Cockies could do any of these splendidly!
AWWWWWWWSOME!!!!!!! You go girl!!!!
Thanks for the feedback Ottomanbrim! The hardest thing was choosing which color variations to keep - took me weeks - & wore my husband out... I'm amazed at how good the close ups work too (so used to seeing fuzzy images there). Thanks again - appreciate it!
I really enjoyed seeing the original photograph of your sulphur crested cockatoo and then all your clever color manipulations! The close ups are amazing with the rich colors and the texture!
Another detail - red eyes this time!
Detail showing just how gorgeous this bird is with blue eyes!
