I was really excited about this assignment because I thought the silly nature of the article would allow me to draw something on the silly side as well – and that’s always fun for me.

My favourite ones are usually those that don’t stick too close to the text, which I tried to emulate with the quarter page drawing of the chickens in a line. I decided to go with “chickens being cooped up in winter” in general rather than a specific paragraph of the article. Whereas the ‘Spot’ one shows the mirror idea from the assignment text.
