Chickies

Occasionally (about once every year), I get filled with enthusiasm and try to write/publish a book. Actually, writing is the easy part. It's the publishing bit that I haven't gotten around to mastering.

The most recent creative effort along these lines involves a children's book about a pair of flightless birds that discover some berries and build a ladder to get to them. The birds are of a "chickie" breed, or a breed invented to amuse my baby sister. They are blob-like, short-limbed, and utterly silly.

This is the inking of the first page. The added text is: "There lived in the forest two flightless birds..."
Currently am on page 10 out of 14 with it.
