Description This was painted as a class assignment to create a 'hybrid' of two things. It had to be Creative! When working on an assignment like this, it's sometimes fun to think in terms of popular expressions as your inspiration. Like 'Rule of thumb' or 'When pigs fly'. I wanted to get away from the idea of pigs with wings, although I have seen some of those with brilliant execution. So, I brought the flying pig into the age of aviation, and seeing some physical similarities between pigs and certain types of helicopters, I hit upon the idea for a 'hogicopter'.
