At the Alberta Street Fair I met some Parrots: Rico and Ziggy! They were charming gentlemen, with a touch of red in feathers on his back Ziggy looks dapper indeed.
My brother sells his Meltybead (or Pearler Bead) paintings of pop culture icons.
He is not the only one with the idea, here are some more by another artist: they take patience and perfection. The street fair is really cool, and its suprising what turns up when there are NO FEES for a booth. They have a website here
