The Thunderbird is a legendary creature from many Pacific Northwest Coastal cultures. It’s a giant bird, known to make thunder from the flapping of its wings and lightning from its eyes. They’re intelligent, powerful and wrathful creatures that are said to be messengers for the great spirits and if angered, they’ll swoop down and take village children. I decided to depict a child that got the best of a thunderbird, to have an adventure.
