Anyone out there have a Chicken Fetish?


No, seriously folks....) I'm just screwing with ya-- to each his own though :) I start my post with this title because I am starting a new series of original artwork: The Mr. Chicken Series....


It just came to me yesterday, sort of randomly...I was looking at one of my greeting card illustrations, which I was fond of-- it was a chicken, and I thought Hey, I like chickens....and then some kind of unconscience weirdness happened...and then came my first painting in the series, "Punk Rock Chicken,"....and then tonight, I created "Astronaut chicken." I have a long list of future paitning ideas, and am obnoxiosly giddy about this.


The thing is, I am a total perfectionist when it comes to my art-- some paintings taking months to complete, even years...seriously. So I wanted to do something kind of dorky, and funny, yet something I could complete within 1-3 days-- hence, the Mr. Chicken series was born.... (And the only reason I can complete them fairly quickly is because they are ACEO's-- (artist trading cards-- measuring 2.5 by 3.5 inches)....Anyway, I'm digging my freaky ass new series..hopefully some of you guys will too :)-
Long live Mr. Chicken....

Namaste' Kerry! this well...rocks! I'm like you sometimes it takes even years for something I am working on, sometimes it is literally a matter of an hour, and it hits me like WHOA! it all depends if *everything* falls into place. Looks like you stumbled onto something. KUDOS! I see a series of this character happening, AND selling. Metta
