Illustration Friday: Propagate

Here's my illustration for the new Illustration Friday topic of "Propagate".

I was sitting on a bench one day, watching pigeons peck away at breadcrumbs as I thought about the word "propagate". I remembered the definition as to multiply, to produce, and I was interested in how pigeons multiply in the cities.

The urban sprawl and the pigeons... so I guess the relationship of the propagation fascinated me in this image. I found this old collage lying around my studio and decided to use it as a background as it contained a nice urban reference.
