In My Printing Apron

It Starts with a Drawing……

Okay, ever since I had a strange visit from a stray black chicken, I have wanted to make some chicken drawings with plans to turn them into etchings with chine colle’…..

So I finally sat down and drew that chicken and about 4 more….. Here are my chicken drawings…










I have played around with some different papers and they still need more work but these are a few of the etchings after I have printed and hand colored them… What I love about these is that I can play with different colored papers and change them up…. These will probably end up being one of a kind prints…















I am still working on the one I call Chicken Pot Pie…. and will post photos when I figure it out….

    These have been very successful. I like the background paper you used with the chicken and ewe, they are very strong images. It looks like you are having a good time.

    I think your chickens have more personality and presence of mind than your average poultry, and certainly more than the world in general gives them credit for. I’m glad that you took the time to help them express their opinions about our society and the times we live in.

    And, I recognized chick-pot-pie as soon as I saw it. 😀

    Ooooh, love them! I better get off my butt & head to the studio, just to clean & reclaim it. Tomorrow should be a printing day. I can’t wait for our paths to cross again.

    Debbie, you just get better and better!
    Love every one of them!
