"Scrappy, Chicken of the Apocalypse"
12 x 9"
Acrylic on canvas
We needed a hero. Along came... Scrappy. Scrappy never gives up, never surrenders, and never lets the apocalypse get her down. A chicken of few words, her actions speak volumes and are a testament to her unbreakable spirit. Let her inspire you, or not--Scrappy doesn't give a cluck.
Con family member Heather has the most marvelously scrappy chicken, and our con family adds to the Legend of Scrappy each time we meet. I found myself essentially writing Scrappy fan-fiction, which evolved into an illustrated short story, for which this is the cover. This is also one instance where cost drove the creative process: black and white was comically less expensive to print vs. full color for both the illustrations and the cover. The starkness suits Scrappy, I dare say!
