Illustration Friday - Chicken


Chickens at School

I tried something I don't normally do for this weeks submission to Illustration Friday. I took a sketch and added color using Photoshop. Did it very quickly and need more time to work on my skills, but it was good practice.

Hehehee... This brought back some old memories! I think I must have had imagined my old school teacher as a hen (at least once) back in those days! :D :D

I love this illustration...it made me laugh, and somehow reminds me of my sister who is a kindergarten teacher who always had a special affection for Tweety Bird.
