Remembering Bird

There are two great Birds in the world of art. One is, of course, the Brad Bird of animation. The other is the Bird of jazz – Charlie “Bird” Parker. Today marks the 50th anniversary of his death (August 29, 1920 – March 12, 1955), and in commemoration, here’s a drawing by Oscar Grillo.
