That sure is a snorkle (combination of snort and chortle).
Clara is so pleased to be the purveyor of said action!
Loving the two little chicks and that sassy blue bow. Cute!
Thanks, Nancy! So glad you stopped by :)
Apart from the skinny legs, this could have been me - and I would have been sharing my disgust at being made to wear a pretty dress with a bow with my nesting friend. My hair was always described as a bird's nest - or rats' tails! (And I always wanted to be called Clara too!)Axxx
Thanks for stopping by, Clara ;)
I love this!:) very cute:)
Thank you, Agnieszka!
She's a chique chick-carrying-chick.Love the look of resignation in her face!
Hahaha! I love that. Come to think of it: she's a chique chick-carrying-chick and a chick. :-D
Did you know, this picture reminds me of a folk lore in Indonesia about the Prince Palasara that grew a bird on his head. lol. Very interesting!
Hi Dewi! I will have to look up the Prince Palasara story. Maybe she can be Princess Palasara? ;)
Haha, she looks exactly like a Clara. And I love the giant bow. (And she may even look a bit like Clara Bow.) The look on her face is hilarious! Love the hair and the chicks! Very adorable and fun.
Funny how the mind associates things...and often unconsciously. Hahaha. Clara Bow. That's probably exactly why that name popped into my head when I drew her. Thanks for stopping by, Cindy!
totally adore that little chick on the table! like his wondering how to get in that nesty hair.keep focused this week :)xo sandra
Thanks, Sandra! I think that little chick is my favorite, too. It's funny because I drew him as an afterthought.
I just love your 'doodles'!
...and I love that you love my 'doodles.' Thanks, friend :)
FUN! I love her "birds nest" hair and the look of 'Do I have to!" on her face.
Thanks, Claire. Yes, she's a little exasperated over her little chick-friends ;)
By the colour of her feet she seems to have trodden on chick no.3.
Yes. She makes chick wine.
Oh that is just DARLING!!! Her little chick is so precious! HI THERE ELIZABETH! I just got off of my busy week with a high school friend staying with me for the week. NOW, back to the drawing board! HAVE FUN! Anita
Thanks, Anita!! Glad you're back on the boards :)
such a cute illustration...love the look on her face :)
It is great! Love the little chick on her head -and her watching out for it! Love your drawing style!
Thanks so much!
Why do I feel like this would be an awesome drawing to go along with a Shel Silverstein poem? :-)
ooo... I feel a silly poem coming on...
It's always nice to meet a new character. :) (Hullo, Clara!)
Clara, with her big bow, bows and says, "Hullo" back!
The little chick sitting down looking up....priceless!! :)
Thanks! Little chick is waiting for his turn ;)
Maybe if I start sporting a chick on my head people will stop commenting on my legs. . . worth a try.
Diversion is always a good tactic. I think I'll try it, too ;)
Super cute chicks...all three of them!!! Clara is absolutely adorable...I wonder what she's thinking about?! The little one sitting down I just want to squeeze, such a sweet puffball, and the one up top looks very , very happy...Clara's nest must be theee place to be!xo J~(It's raining again this very second! This is the craziest summer EVER!!! So glad my camp is not outside!)
Yes, little chick on top is VERY pleased! Clara's just being tolerant, and it would never occur to her to comb her hair ;)Re: the weather-- isn't today grand?
This made me laugh so hard!! she's a cute chick
In light of making you laugh hard--I consider this illo to be a success! Thanks so much, Naomi!
Glad you think so, josh. Thanks for stopping by :)
well I see the little chick looking up as having not been able to stay on top of the head, hence the eye roll from the girl. hahahaha.but I guess you've determined that he's just waiting his turn.expressions are simple and great.all around..
Yes, he's next. Poor Clara is resigned to annoying little hair-chicks. Thanks Richard!
Hi, thank you for popping by my blog. I love your illustrations, they really made me smile. Love birds nest hair on chick girl. :)
Hey Catherine! I'm so glad they made you smile :)
wonderful line work
Thanks, Stephen :)
Fun and Adorable illustration!Love the expression and the chicks!
Dang, look at those skinny legs. Clara could give Olive Oyl a run for her money.
Olive Oyl is her mom. Her name is Clara Oyl.
Ah yes, the trials of motherhood... She's not a family member of the chap who had the birds' nests in his beard, is she? I love her stoic expression!
Yes...he is her dad ;) (See Ted's comment and reply above, for full parentage);)
very cool Elizabeth... very chick!
Clara says, "Thanks, Melissa!!"
Hahaha! Très chic, las tres chicas! What I want to know is whether the hen actually brooded on her head... that doesn't sound too comfy... unless of course it was very cold out.
As you know, anything can happen in the world of illustration ;)Maybe I will redraw it with a hen on the table instead of the little chick!
Cool Chicks!I love the contrast between Clara's elegant dress and that messy hair (it looks like a nest!!).I think her mom dress her up but she's more of a tomboy who enjoys playing outside instead of staying at home and play with her dolls.The good thing is that she has found new friends :)
You are quite right, Ana. Clara is not too fond of her party dress and gigantic bow. She's already kicked off her shoes ;)Thanks for stopping by !
"A chick carrying chick! genius, I love it!Dixxxx
Thank you, Di :)
Very funny and cute!! I love it!
Love her hair and giant sash bow!!
The chick just couldn't resist the hair. As for the sash bow--I think Clara is a little fashion challenged ;)
Oh wowy love this chicky! Your art is just great, I am looking forward to see more.
Hey Manon! Thanks so much!
ah, those little tiny duckies :-)
Yes...little birdies as accessories! ;)
Hee hee, may all our burdens be so delightful! :o)
What a nice thought, Michele!
Hello Elizabeth! This is fantastic, I must confess that i absolutely love all your characters!:D Have a beautiful day!
Marisa, you are so kind to say so! Thanks!!!
Elizabeth my dear! THANK YOU for coming over on this lovely summer day! I am back on my feet and hoping to post again by tomorrow night. I so hope you are enjoying HOT FUN IN THE SUMMERTIME; what a perfect season we are having this year!!! Anita
Hi Anita! I'm always happy when you stop by :)I'm so glad you are having a good summer!
Love it!And the two little chicks are adorable:)
Hysterical! This is what happens when you don't brush your hair everyday - must show this to my kids... :D
Haha! I'm glad Clara can be an example for hygiene :-D
Ha ha ha!!! I often refer to my hair as a bale of hay, or nest, but thankfully nobody has roosted there....yet!!! Thanks for the smile!!!
Yes...beware of little opportunistic chicks! Thanks for stopping by, Mit!!
pretty cool chick this Clara! Who cares how her hair looks. She does not look to bothered. It actually looks alot like my daughters hair on a daily basis! ha ha. YES I do love those little chicks too! :D
"Who cares how her hair looks."Love it!
I just smiled so big when I see HENNY'S sweet little face pop up on my comments! Thank you dear artist and friend for your visit today. I spend several hours in my workshop trying to illustrate for a new tag set....the ideas are in my head but to bring them out in an illustration???? FRUSTRATING sometimes!Enjoy your day my dear. Looking forward to a new drawing! Anita
Anita! I can't wait to see what you create for the tags. I have no doubt it will be as enchanting as the rest! Thanks, as ever, for the wonderful comment :)
The chick sitting on the counter is so adorable I want to reach into the illo and hug it! The girl's expression, too, is priceless. :)
Thanks so much, Debbie! I think, in spite of the nesting, Clara is really fond of those little chicks :)Glad you stopped by !!
How lovely! I just love the little chicks :)
Clara and her chicks are so pleased that you stopped by :) Thanks!!
I truly appreciate your comments.I try and reply, so be sure and come back!
