Day 329: Artistry Under Wraps

When you are a talented artist (with feathers), you know imitators are always keen to nab your original designs and claim them for their very own.

  1. Yes, there are many imitators who are jealous of Pearls unique take on the scalloped edge but none equal the aplomb of the artist.
