Chicken Licken



This is my entry for the Tomie dePaola award. It's a scene from Chicken Licken (aka Chicken Little). I am so excited about this piece. It's done in a style that's been brewing all year, but was always just out of reach. It's also a much more complicated composition than I usually do. I had the idea from the beginning, but it took a lot of sketching, scanning, and re-sketching to make it work. I'm so happy with it and I can't wait to get onto the next project to play some more.
