Illustration Friday - Hatch


Hatch is the word this week. Two for the price of one here - a hatch to the hen house and those eggs are probably getting ready to hatch. This is chalk on black paper - a study I did for a woodcut some years ago. Cheating a little with this as I've posted it before, but with no time for IF this week thought I'd give it another airing!

  2. I am glad you did. This is marvelous and I didn't get to see it the last time. It seems so alive. I am surprised you haven't found little chalk chicks running about.
