Thanks to the SCBWI & Tomie DePaola for their annual illustration challenge every year; I love inspiration illustration prompts like this -- partly for my own motivation, of course, but also because it's so fun seeing how others interpret the prompt.
This year's theme was an excerpt Chicken Licken story by P.C. Asbjörnsen. If you have your illustration online anywhere, please do post the URL in the comments section! I posted my own illustration above.
