Hoochie Bird is my salute for the great Gibson Firebird. This iconic design sure is one of the coolest out there. Another carrying theme for this project was also Mr Johnny Winter, one of the most legendary “Bird men”.

I felt so happy to get this finally done ’cause it turned out to be so cool, functional and classic. Definitely expected and welcome member for The T.Family. There’s gonna be more of these, I promise!
