Illustration Friday: Perspective

An unusual perspective: the Guide Chicken. I was teaching one point perspective to a group of third graders. While I was talking about guide lines, I lost their attention. So I started talking about chickens instead. When I mentioned "guide chicken" their attention returned. "What's a guide chicken?" Well that is an illustration challenge, what would a guide chicken look like. (more importantly what would a guide chicken do? Not as loyal or as smart as a dog...)

Illustration Friday: Propagate

It's been a while since I posted an IF. And when I read this one, I thought no way to create an appropriate children's illustration without using bunnies. So I wasn't going to do it until I walked into my son's room and saw the pile of paper airplanes accumulating there. Paper airplanes certainly have been propagating around here lately!
