Kookaburra Cardigan Kev

I've been wanting to paint a kookaburra for some time now. Starting off by thinking a name for him sparks off some past memories. I used to work in local government back home and we had a guy in the office we use to call cardigan kev, because he always wore cardigans. So that's where cardigan kev the kookaburra came from, hope you like him.
