George the Chicken Story Illustration

This is an illustration and page layout that I created for a blog post written by a friend, former colleague and writer, Charlyn Ellis.  The story is character sketch of her first chicken George’s life and death. In this layout, I chose to use a medieval manuscript style, venerating the fondly remembered chicken with elaborate illumination that reference aspects of her life as written in the text. I created all of the illustrations in Adobe Illustrator and used InDesign for the page layout.
