Illustration Friday: Chicken


This week the word is on Illustration Friday is 'chicken'. As I started to draw a chicken I suddenly remembered the story 'Chicken Licken'. I knew I used to have a reading book with the story in it from when I was little and here it is!


I could never understand how an acorn could be mistaken for the sky!

such a beautiful chicken.

i remember chicken-licken very well from my chilhood. the first time i was asked to read anything out-loud in class (and i was painfully shy at the time) was from this book. it made me feel like the sky had fallen on My head.

i love your purple pink chicken and all your lovely details. some might never understand how a chicken could be these colors. That is the charm of childrens books, the expression of an artist and the freedom of life.

What a gorgeous purple chicken!

I immediately thought of the Chicken Licken story, too. I am working on a drawing of Chicken Licken for my entry this week.

Wonderful colours :)

My dad used to read me Chicken Licken at bedtime - I didn't think of it at the time, but such a tragic ending for a children's story!
