'Drunk Tweets': Tipsy Twitter bird as art (pictures)
Would-be teeth tweet
What if Twitter's famous blue bird mascot and his buddies had a cocktail party? That's what San Francisco graphic artist Josh Ellingson pondered when he started his whimsical "Drunk Tweets" series of paintings.
"The whole thing happened because I wanted to post a tweet that said, 'Teeth are really just bones...that you can lick,'" Ellingson told Crave. "It was one of those weird thoughts that came to me after a night out, drinking. I wrote it down, thinking it would be a good thing to tweet later, but then I decided it would be funnier as a sketch. So I made a quick doodle of a drunk Twitter bird saying that. I liked drawing [it] so much that I just kept going."
