The Sick Rooster:
Cebah spotted this little drawing in the stack I brought up from the studio and nabbed it. She found an old frame and was working away in the kitchen trying to fix it so that she could hang the rooster up. The first thing that she said about it was "There's something wrong with him. Maybe he got rained on - they don't like to get wet." It really pleased me, because the only thing I remember about this drawing is that the rooster was sick, or out of sorts. Whatever it was, he wasn't moving around much and that helped from the drawing perspective. The subject may be a little odd, but I like the execution of this one, and to have a rooster expert (Cebah has throttled more roosters than most people have ever seen.) note the evidence of avian malaise in a tiny pencil drawing is my kind of approbation.
