Chicken Little

I recently created artwork for the Tomie dePaola award at SCBWI.  Unfortunately, I was not able to renew my membership before the deadline, so it is now a portfolio piece.

The contest was to illustrate the following text:

So they went along and went along until they met Turkey Lurkey
“Good morning, Goosey Loosey, Ducky Daddles, Cocky Locky, Henny Penny,
and Chicken Licken,” said Turkey Lurkey, “where are you going?”
“Oh, Turkey Lurkey, the sky is falling and we are going to tell the King!”
“How do you know the sky is falling?” asked Turkey Lurkey.
“Ducky Daddles told me,” said Goosey Loosey.
“Cocky Locky told me,” said Ducky Daddles.
“Henny Penny told me,” said Cocky Locky.
“Chicken Licken told me,” said Henny Penny
“I saw it with my own eyes, I heard it with my own ears,
and a piece of it fell on my tail!” said Chicken Licken.
“Then I will go with you,” said Turkey Lurkey, “and we will tell the King!”

    You really are good! I love the Chicken Little and so wished you had been able to enter it. Am impressed with your work. Do you help with blog header designs! I want to rework mine after the first of the year. Like your header a lot — its simple. And, I love the Perfect Picture Book badge! — Pat
