“The Poeming Pigeon: In the News”
The first eleven issues of The Poeming Pigeon featured original cover illustrations by Robert R. Sanders, introducing “Homer” our pigeon mascot donning his favorite chapeaus & unique accessories to celebrate each thematic issue.
In the days of fake news and sensational headlines, Robert wanted to give Homer a more respectful journalist image. Harking back to the days of Murrow and Cronkite, Homer dons his fedora with his press pass tucked into the hat band. Robert then brought him into the present day with an iPad under his wing for reading the latest headlines, contrasted with the analog rolled newspaper bearing the title theme.
