Illustration Friday - Chicken

I did this illustration in the first few months that I had come to Canada.
It's done with acrylic colors on a piece of cardboard.
I had brought all of my acrylic paints with me from Iran, but no paper... and
as a new immigrant I had no idea where I could find art papers and supplies.


  1. What a nice surprise!:0) First of all - I like your iluustration veeeery much! Such a tender hug! Secondly - you had the necessity to draw and as we can see, art can be created not only on a clean sheet of paper!:)

  2. I love it... Do more artworks on cardboard, it has a nice texture.

  3. Awww... I remember the time when I was a new immigrant in Canada. This illustration has totally awaked that feelings of vulnerability and uncertainty. Did you have it too?

  4. I love the texture that the cardboard gives it!
    Very cool!!

  5. That's so beautiful, and colorful. The illustration is giving a great professional and perfect look. Very nice sharing, Thanks for posting.

  7. How cute! I love this illustration! And I agree with Rossichka, you don't need white paper to create something so lovely :)

  8. I love LOVE this illustration. It's full of sweetness... I love the colours too.
