Modern chick in the kitchen

Modern chick in the kitchen
This very modern chick was going to be on the cover of a cookbook,
but got axed at the last moment.
I might use it one day for a book I dream of making with my grandma's recipes.

Hola, Geninne:

¡Qué gracioso, un pájaro con teléfono móvil y delantal! Además, me encanta el tono alegre de tus acuarelas y que haya tantos libros.

¡Gracias por compartir tu talento!

Que pases un buen fin de semana.

I think this is my all time favorite drawing/painting.
This would look wonderful in the corner of a 4X6 recipe card, yes?

This one really knocked my socks off!! Good idea, changing the cupboard door to a bookshelf instead...makes me feel like perusing all those interesting looking titles. Love your brilliant colors.

The chick is lovely, Geninne, but I prefer it without the Iphone. I am very happy for your beautiful drawings.

So stinking cute! So how does that happen, do the publishers choose someone else or do they ask you to edit and adjust?

Geninne, I love these kitchen creatures. Would you sell a print of the sketches to me. I would love to have them both for my kitchen, just in black and white. You are so talented and to your eye for detail comes so much humour!
