Yellow Bird is on of the Angry Bird characters. "Angry Birds", the game by Rovio Mobile, burst on the scene in early 2009. It now has millions of addicted devotees all around the world.
Angry Birds has very quickly become a part of our technological consciousness and has etched it's place in the history of things gone viral. It's the Space Invaders of the 21st century, and so I thought to myself, hmmm... these angry little birds deserve to be immortalized on canvas for future generations to gaze upon and contemplate. Why are these birds so angry? How are they flying with no visible wings? (I guess that's why they need the slingshot!)
So behold! I've captured the Yellow bird's angry little face in paint, for eternity, much like van Gogh's Yellow House. :P He's a symbol of strength, determination, and sacrifice, for he will fight for his bird family even if it means the feathers will fly and he is flung into a slab of wood, glass, or stone. He will even accelerate to near warp speed when tapped in flight. (Note: do not try this with the painting.)
From the Angry Bird Wiki:
Yellow Birds (also known as Speedy Birds and Dasher Birds) are a type of Bird introduced near the end of World 1 inTheme 1-16. The birds are yellow colored (hence their name) and are triangular in shape. Their ability allows them to dash into pigs and structures, making them able to inflict more damage on buildings than the Red Bird. Much like many of the other birds, it's strength usually varies depending on what block is struck and what angle it is struck, but in most cases, it can go through several thin wood blocks. Don't let it crash on either stone or glass block or it will stop immediately.
"Yellow Bird" stands as an inspiration to do your best against all naysayers and bullies and emerge triumphant! Don't let the pigs of this world get away with stealing what's rightfully yours. Go out and sock it 'em with all you got! Fly into that great blue yonder, and control your own destiny! Everytime the future owner of this painting looks at "Yellow Bird" it's my hope that it lifts their spirits and brings a smile across their face and inspires them to release their inner "Yellow Bird". RAMSPEED!
Details: "Yellow Bird" original painting, on 8 x 10 inch stretched canvas, with a wooden frame. The painting is about a half inch thick, with painted sides, so you can frame it if you wish, or display it as is. The back of the painting contains the title, the date painted, Nitrozac's signature, and a fingerprint for authenticity.
