I usually like to make tags featuring the work of the artists of yesteryear, but sometimes I make a little set that is modern or "cute."
Here are jpeg and png versions of a little decorated yellow chick.
I am very happy the horrible idea of dyeing baby chicks various colors and selling them as a sort of temporary, living decoration is much less popular than before. I found it a gruesome and odd tradition, even as a child.
Does anyone remember gathering eggs from a chicken coop? It could be quite a frightening experience, reaching into a nest and feeling the slither of a "bull snake," or worse, its bite, like a stubby-toothed monster latched onto your hand.
Thanks for dropping by.
