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.
