Chicken Sketches

Hi everyone, I talked to my agent yesterday about the flower hat bear story, and it wasn't her favorite.  But she wants me to keep working on a chicken story I had written back when she first signed me.  It's really taking shape, and I think I'm close to having the final draft.

For right now I'm trying to figure out the main character's design and have decided to base her on the classic Hollywood actors such as Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn (oh, and the glasses are a Jackie Kennedy-ish style).  My agent also wants the story laid in thumbnail sketches to get a feeling for the pacing, which I'll post as well.  I'm so excited! :)

I'm sorry to hear that the bear and hat story wasn't your agent's favorite; I hope you'll explore it more when you have time because I just LOVE the illustrations you were creating. This new story about the chic chick looks like a great one!
