This is just what the title says... The Alex Foundation agreed to let me draw Alex and they will be posting it on their website to raise money for the foundation. For those of you who don't know who Alex was, he was an African Grey parrot that was involved in an experiment conducted over 30-some years by Irene Pepperberg. He paved the way for avian intelligence research and was completely brilliant, but unfortunately died pretty young. You can read more about him on the foundation website here [link]
and I would highly recommend reading the book Alex & Me
I'll post an update when it actually goes up on the site, if anyone is interested in buying it.
