Charley Harper's Cardinal rides a UNICORN?
Charley Harper (August 4, 1922-June 10, 2007) was a Cincinnati-based American Modernist artist. He was best known for his highly stylized wildlife prints, posters and book illustrations.

I introduced Charley Harper to the third graders using the link above.
The kids drew cardinals and cut them out.
Then, they decided what their cardinal would be doing.
Once they decided on the placement of the cardinal, they glued the cardinal down.
Colored pencils were used to fill in the background.
I really like how the project turned out.
Oh yeah, we painted the background paper gray for display purposes.
Drum Roll, PLEASE.
Here is the blog's namesake.
The red cardinal is sitting on the unicorn and taking a ride.
You saw it here first.
The cardinal on the unicorn is beyond awesome.
