The bond between animal and human reminds us of our primal nature, and introduces wild animals into the bizarre world of humanity.  Illustrator Steven Twigg realized this when he met Willard, a common Hamilton pigeon, last seen April 20, 2013.  Twigg is asking Hamilton look out for Willard, and get in touch with him if they hear of his whereabouts.

“Willard’s a risk taker,” says Twigg, between tears, “and that’s what bonded us together.  Whether it was sitting on the metal sail structures at Bayfront park during a thunderstorm, or playing chicken with the bus, Willard always made things wild and free.   He looks like…well, pigeons all kinda look the same.  He’s grey and white, and he makes those adorable cooing noises.”

“I’ve released a video of his last few hours, by stitching together CCTV footage from downtown.  I haven’t even had the time to look at it,” says Twigg.  “He’s was just so chill – like he never cared if you thought he was cool.  It was like he was totally oblivious.”

So, Hamilton, please take a few minutes of your time to review the poster and the footage below, and let’s get Willard (or a pigeon that looks like him) back in Twigg’s hands.
