I am part of an art collaboration with Jason Hardy. We are calling ourselves "HereWith." We were invited to create a piece for an auction benefitting the Oregon Humane Society organized by Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney/Portlandia). The only rule was that it had to "have a bird on it."

Jason wrote a poem and I handled the rest. There is a long story that goes with the bird being depicted but I won't tell it now.
