Hello, just a quick illo this week, whats new I hear you ask?
This little image was inspired by the illustration Friday word imperfect which brought back some childhood memories of mine. We had chooks ( chickens) and they were allowed to roam free around our yard, they laid our egg supply but we also had broody hens and chicks from time to time.
On at least two occasions i remember there was a little chick born with a deformed leg. These little chickens really fought for survival and to keep up with their much healthier siblings and mum but alas, they could never really compete. When they could no longer keep up and things were glum we would take them inside and put them in an ice cream container with lots of soft padding and keep them warm, feeding them with an eye dropper until their time came.
I like to think we brought those little chicks some comfort at that time.
Of course it all seems a little rosier in this little picc.
