Sonya's Chicken's

Here are some of the images from the book I wrote & illustrated this semester at RISD in my Picture & Word class, called Sonya's Chickens. A book about a young girl who is given three young chicks to care for, and her journey as she learns about the joys and sorrows that caring for other creatures brings.

“Shhh.” Said Sonya’s papa. 
“What seems unfair to you, might make sense to a fox.” 
And he told her a story.

The original piece for the cover illustration
