Canadian artist Kelly D. Brown incorporates both her digital prowess and photography talents in her Chickapug print.

The image, also potentially called Pugadee, is a photo of a tiny Chickadee bird perched on a person’s fingertips, tempted by a handful of seeds. Brown managed to seamlessly incorporate the head of a cute little pug in place of the bird’s head, creating a new breed that is equal parts adorable and bizarre. Using photography as her medium, the artist creates realistic looking images that make the viewer do a double take as they look for any tell-tale signs of image tampering.

Completely flawless and beguiling, the Chickapug print, sold in the Kellydbrown shop on Etsy, is a hilarious mash-up of bird and dog.
