My niece had to write and illustrate a short story for her Spanish class and she shared her story with me. It's about a chick who's afraid of the outside world and refuses to hatch. She also happens to live on Jupiter, though she's meant to look like a fairly normal Earth-born chick. Without second-guessing the details of this quirky tale, I decided to try illustrating her story as a quick personal project. This is the result. In retrospect, I should have made some of the illos spreads, incorporating the text. And I could have made the illos more soft-edged vignettes. Next time.
