Writing in Doodles

After Scott and I had a few more email conversations about what kind of fun story we can do with a Daredevil Chicken, we decided to brainstorm a little bit more on our own. For me, that means doodling in my moleskine.

Sure, I like drawing chickens, but the daredevil theme is something new to me. We had talked about a chicken telling the others about his grand stunts but he's really a chicken (get it?!) Above, he is telling his "story" but in reality (below):

I did a few more scenerios- his grand tale:

In reality:
Visually speaking, I liked the contrast between his grand tale, and then turning the page and showing what really happened. But I think I'm jumping ahead. Its the designer in me talking. Gotta put on the writer hat first.


  1. Adorable! What a fun project. Can't wait to see more!

  2. I think it is awesome that you are documenting this process.

  3. Looks like a great start! I like the fantasy vs. reality concept!

  4. I love it, Jannie! I think the way your showing the contrast between the two realities is a great idea!

  5. Cool idea, cool doodles and cool collaboration!
    Keep up this high spirit and passion in picture book creation!
