ahhhh, chickens

I needed to take a short break from the books that I’m ¬†illustrating. Andgirl and chicken inspired by seeing some illustrations by of one of my favorite artists, Garth Williams, at the Eric Carle Picture Book Museum thought it would be fun to practice my penwork. ¬†Until seeing his beautiful sketches and inks of Fern and Wilbur up close, I hadn’t realized what a big influence his work has been on mine. And I so loved seeing his different versions of the Charlotte’s Web cover art. I’d love to see a book of his collected work and sketches. I would eat it up.

I don’t know why she’s shy- she just is.

This is my pal, Andy. He’s a sommelier and a metal head, and now he’s flying over DC. I’m looking forward to animating him.

More Rabbits!
