Back in January, Jannie Ho (aka chickengirl) had her topic "Chicken" picked for Illustration Friday. There were participants all over the blogosphere who participated (me, included) in IF for the first time in months. Those of us on Twitter even changed our avatars to reflect our chicken status, and when we talked about how much fun we were having with the chicken topic, we used the #bawkbawkbawk hashtag.
My husband and I have agreed that I shouldn't ask him for feedback on pieces because as he puts it, "I'm an engineer, what the heck do I know about your art?" But this time I thought he might be interested in my latest experiment. So I showed him this piece after it had been printed out for my portfolio. And you know what, when he looked at this piece, there wasn't just encouragement and support on his face. There was real admiration and appreciation for what I had made. :)
