IF: CHICKEN

CHICK CHAT
© Diana Ting Delosh
ink & watercolor

Here's my illustration for this week's Illustration Friday prompt - CHICKEN. It's an oldie but it fits and it still makes me smile.

CHICK CHAT is my homage to my days as a production artist in what was then called the stable. I miss the comraderie of those days. I don't miss the insane deadlines but wait as a freelance/independent artist I still encounter insane deadlines. Originally this illustration was a design that I had submitted to  several greeting card companies that I freelanced for. They all passed on it - but I still believed in this design. Today you can find it as an Easter card in my store - greetingcarduniverse.com/dianascards

It's a heck of a lot more funny than most of what I see in the card isles today. Very good job with this one!

Sometimes there's no fathoming why designs get passed over - I agree with Steve! It made me laugh!
