Newcastle City Council commissioned this poster in 1995 as an educational artwork to inform and educate visitors to Blackbutt Reserve about the pigeons and doves indigenous to the Hunter Valley Region of New South Wales, Australia.
The artwork was all hand drawn and painted using a mixed media of pen, ink, gouche and watercolour on watercolour paper. The text and lettering was drawn free hand using calligraphy techniques in ink.
A print of the original is part of a permanent educational collection owned by Newcastle City Council, and displayed at Blackbutt Reserve, NSW, Australia. The original poster is in the National Library of Australia, Trove Collection, http://trove.nla.gov.au/version/28619215
