Turns out, socks on a rooster isn't all that cool.


So, as promised, I spent last night attempting to make a new design featuring a besocked rooster. It ends up that it was one of those ideas that seems like a winner but doesn't really pan out. Maybe I'll try again but I'm not sure the concept is worth the effort. At first I started with the simplest approach of a rooster standing calmly while wearing socks in a portrait style. I wasn't amused enough by it so I tried to invent a scenario where I thought a rooster would enjoy wearing socks. I thought the only way a proud rooster would wear a pair of silly socks was if it helped him impress a hen. So, somehow I developed the scene above where he is rubbing his socks on the rug to generate static and have a laugh with his hen friend. Yeah, it became a little too convoluted.

I wish I had made this a couple weeks ago when the theme for Illustration Friday was "Electricity".

That makes sense :) I need to stretch my imagination a little about socks I think!

What about saggy socks - like an old lady with saggy stockings. I think a skinny legged rooster with saggy socks would be entertaining.

Sounds like idyll hands and I had the same idea. I thought scrouched socks (or sock) would look pretty silly on a proud ol rooster. Thanks for trying. I still like it. Perhaps I could talk you into making a note card or two to give to AP. Happy Wednesday :o)

Makes sense - roosters will do anything to impress a hen! And the hens usually don't care. Reminds me of some men I know.
