Neon Quetzal bird

Still on tropical/vacation mode from our trip to Mexico earlier this summer i decided to make a fancy bird for the back yard for inspiration. I remember buying a paper mache toucan when i was visiting my moms town in Mexico as a kid and wanted to capture the same feeling.

Five Boro Bike Tour | New York

My partner and I decided to do the New York bike tour this year. 45 miles through Manhattan, Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island all in about 4 hours. It truly was an amazing experience and riding on the BQE highway was the highlight of the tour!
