Illustration Friday: Chicken!

I've been wanting to participate in Illustration Friday for a while now.  For those of you who unfamiliar with it, Illustration Friday is a website that chooses a topic every Friday, then throughout the following week, artists and illustrators of all skills levels can post a link to their interpretation of the topic.  Even though I've been checking it out for weeks, I hadn't participated.  Sometimes the topic didn't appeal to me, but to be honest, there was a little stage-fright involved.  What finally got me to take the plunge?  This week's topic is chicken.

Since my chickens are my latest obsession, (I've even added a page to my blog for those of you interested in seeing them.) I figured it's now or never!  So, thanks to my three's my first contribution to Illustration Friday.

(Big thanks to Jannie Ho at Chickengirl Design for the topic. Check out her blog here; she's incredibly talented. And she likes chickens.)


  1. Hey Sarah,

    Love this. And there's little Charlotte's egg! What a great idea. Keeping up with your blog now. I used to live in NCAL. Sure miss it.

  2. These are lovely.
    Congratulations on your new prismacolors... they're my favorites too :)


  3. What an elegant drawing.The value shifts are lovely.

    I did eggs as well...but more painterly.

  4. As one who has no artistic talent whatsoever, I am awed by your drawings. The eggs are gorgeous, drawn and photographed. Your three girls are adorable. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Thanks everyone! It was fun to post on IF for the first time; not sure about this week's topic, though: "dusty". That'll be an interesting one - looking forward to seeing everyone's interpretation.

  6. I adore my little egg layers! Those egg drawings are fab!
