I've been drawing and painting and looking at a lot of them recently.  And then I found these doodles that I did last fall while reading a story called "L'éléphant" (yes, "The Elephant"), by Marcel Aymé.  In this story there is a chicken who wants to be the elephant in a game of Noah's Ark.  She pretends so hard that she actually turns into an elephant and breaks the wall, among other things.

It's a good story.


  1. These are beautiful, Emily! My favorite is the one on the bottom, is very elegantly done and really tells story :)

  2. I just realized that the third chicken down wishes she could put socks over her ears that she doesn't have, too. She got the idea from Calvin & Hobbes.
