Illus Friday-Punchline


Here's the chicken and the road...source for a whole slew of punchlines.

This was drawn in pencil on the cardboard back from an old sketchpad and then painted in acrylics.

P.S. The background is referenced from a photo I took outside of Ludlow, California.

Beautifully rendered. Well done.
So the chicken doesn't actually cross the road, just stays in the middle... I see...

Fantastic! I love the texture in this painting - great idea to use the back of an old sketch pad!

I love this! Giving the old joke setup a realist Americana-style scene. I think this chicken would cross the road for only the most practical of purposes (maybe there's a feed store on the other side?) Absolutely beautiful painting.
