Have you ever wondered what you get when you combine colorful birds and makeup? Probably not, but we will still tell you the funny secret: the answer is The Pansy Project—a makeup look inspired by drawn birds.
According to Paul Harfleet, the founder of the project, the idea to make a compilation of drawn feathered friends began in April 2020 when the lockdown was announced.
“As I sat in my apartment overlooking a clearer, quieter London skyline, I noticed the birds more than ever and my passion for ornithology re-emerged,” the artist shared on Bored Panda and added that he began drawing birds he could see from his window.
To promote his work on social media, he came up with a fantastic idea; he began dressing up like his feathered friends. “These humorous and light-hearted shoots used my own wardrobe and makeup skills and became an intrinsic component of a project that has become known as Birds Can Fly,” he added.
