rare as hen’s teeth

October 18, 2009


While gazing at herself in the mirror this morning, Henrietta was frozen with a sense of pride at being one of the rare hens with teeth.
A bit of a stretch perhaps, what with the Illustration Friday’s word of the week being “frozen.” But being a relatively new user of a Wacom tablet and playing around with Photoshop brushes, I redid an older post today. So, being quite lazy, figured heck, why not post this… heh!

  1. This is awesome! Totally cracked me up.

  2. Chicken teeth and pink slippers…I’d say Henrietta is indeed a rare bird!!

    So cute. So funny. It reminds me of a saying that my Dad’s friend says, “It fits like socks on a rooster.” I like the pink slippers on a chicken. As always, it’s a very well done piece of art.

    It’s kinda hard looking at this drawing while I’m at work and not getting fired. This is hysterical and fantastic at the same time. I love Henrietta’s slippers and her teeth are the 9th wonder of the world! 🙂

    Have a great week. You deserve it after showcasing such a fabulous drawing.

  5. Vicki Says:

    This redo is fabulous.
    I always wondered how she keeps those bony toes in the slippers, though? 🙂

    hihi… silly hen!
    I like how the paste looks like a worm… or maybe I just associate that way because of the chicken… either way cute cute!

  13. Oh, Linda! You are a whiz. She’s got lovely teeth, too. Veneers? Bleaching? Even Tom Cruise should be jealous. You are rockin’ that Wacom, girl!
