Late to the party again....

But at least it's a finished piece for a change.

This is for a friend at work. We're only a small team, and at Christmas there is a tendency for hand-made goodies. Last year was personalised recipe books, this year it's small art works.

The lady this is going to loves clowns, so this was a chance to illustrate one of my favourite opera pieces - "Vesti la giubba" from Pagliacci.

Next I need to come up with something for the lady who keeps chickens. Anybody know any chicken quotes/sayings? Preferably light hearted.


  1. No one here but us chickens?
    why did the chicken cross the road?
    what came first....chicken or egg?

  2. The piece for your friend at work looks great! I think it's really cool that your team exchanges hand-made gifts.

  3. chicken quotes a bit out of my reach I have to say, though we have like 6 houses in our street that have chickens and they are always breaking out and hanging out together... it is great watching the owners try and round them up... makes my day to watch the madness... great artwork and a lovely idea for work colleagues... they will be thrilled to get work like this xx

  4. Chickens are noisy but nice!
    Exchange of gifts which have so much effort poured into them will always be treasured and have the memory attachd to them, of the designer.
    Charming idea!

  5. Wow, what a creative workplace you have! Fabulous idea to exchange handmade gifts - I'm hard pushed to convince my best friend to do this haha lucky lady receiving this piece, she'll be thrilled, thanks for sharing :)
