Illustration Friday: Chicken


When advertising my poll for auctioned art on Facebook, one of my friends jokingly said I should draw a picture of a monkey riding a chicken to offer for the auction (I think he was joking, anyway). So I quickly drew this picture, posted it, and set the starting bid at $100 (hey, it's for a good cause). To no avail, I had no bidders. That's OK, I enjoyed drawing it anyway.
I found it funny that a couple days after I finished this drawing that the posted IF topic was "Chicken". Though I usually try to create my illustrations after the topics are posted, I just couldn't resist the opportunity to use this drawing.
Created with pen and India ink.

Oh my gosh, how funny is this?

I showed it to my Little Miss 3 and she fell down laughing (partly for real and partly in her bigger than life acting mode).

Thanks so much for this wonderful whimsical picture,

Excellent sketch and such an original subject. Now how about chicken riding monkey for $ 200.00?

though i fear for the chicken.
the monkey has a seriously devilish look on his face...

Very well drawn, and you get an A+ for originality! You make it sound like it was a surprise that CHICKEN was the IF topic - actually the odds weren't that far against it, since there was also MONKEY and MONKEY RIDING CHICKEN and any other number of other categories this could have fit into. (btw - did you see on the news the other day, where an older brother challenged his younger brother to put his tongue on a pole, and he did so and the police and fire rescue had to be called to remove him?!)

This fits perfectly with the theme, even if you did do it before and sooo funny.

This is really good, I love it. It could be a cover for a children's book, a label for a product, an illustration for an ad...I collect chickens so this tickles my fancy.
