Egg


This week's prompt at Illustration Friday is "Egg", to coincide with Easter I suppose.

So I drew this chicken, just in case anybody thought Easter eggs really come from a bunny.  I wanted to give credit where credit was due.  But I must confess, it could very well be that my reference for this drawing was a rooster.  I'm not very well versed on bird anatomy.

Much of our Easter traditions have origins with the Pagan holiday Beltaine, primarily a fertility festival.  Eggs... Bunnies...  Rather symbolic, yes.

Happy Easter weekend.  On a somewhat related note, know how to make holy water?

Boil the hell out of it.

  1. Certainly a rooster. Which is essential if you ever want the egg to turn into another chicken.

    1. Thank you for that official Farmboy confirmation! I had my suspicions. At least I knew about the second part of your comment!

  2. When you said it was a chicken, I thought it was a chicken. Then when you thought it might be a rooster, I thought it might be a rooster. I'm not well versed on bird anatomy either. No matter what it is, you drew it well.
    Happy Easter to you! Cute joke! Mind if I use it?

    1. I wanted a "pretty" chicken, and upon further review, I thought he was too pretty to be a chicken!
      Feel free to use the joke, I certainly own no rights to holy water!
