Traditional Christmas End

Like every year we wrap up the holiday with the traditional ending.

I don't need to explain this image. You all know that the Christmas fowl rides upon his golden star, cutting his way through the red sky of dusk.

Chilly The Snow Chicken

Chilly the Snow Chicken is still a strong original character and not a clear parallel to any popular classic Christmas character.

Chilly the Snowchicken, was a savory happy soul~♪

Sick Again

Well, I have the covid. Pretty upset about it since it's just before Christmas.

Should still be good to get in some quality Christmas content for the site.

Face Over Shade


This face is very heavily shaded. The outline on the other side are perhaps not heavy enough to provide any sense of balance in the piece.

The essentials of distilled into a simple frame. Let your thoughts dwell of our words and remember that those words are simply "cluck"

Drawing with Children

I'm drawing with my nieces so between some other things let me slide in a quick chicken.

Grey Greeting

Under gray skies you can see a sad world, but sometimes even in that dull morose world someone gives you a cheerful wave.

Crossing Wings – November 2021 Wallpaper


They're crossing wings instead of crossing swords because they're birds.

Originally I considered the samurai scene where one is about to fall, but I think this piece has a clear stylistic look. And that look is an old beat-em-up video game. Not the extra shiny 80s artwork or the 8-bit NES style, but the essence of how I vaguely remember these things after decades have passed.

Thank you as always to my Patreon Supporters. Without them I wouldn't make these monthly wallpapers even if this one is a bit late.

Deep Holler (Remake)

Here we have a rare remake for one of my older pieces, titled Deep Holler. The changes are mostly just correcting proportions, cleaner linework and adjusting the framing. The microphone was an addition from the requestor, but it gives a bit more depth to the whole image. The soundwave/spiral  has a slightly warped/stretched quality, which I think gives it more impact compared to the precise ones in the original. Anyways, like I said on the original, it's not that deep.

I would often like to circle back since I think I've improved a lot over the years, but it's hard to know what a good thing to remake it since looking back on the site is just a combination of nostalgia and grimacing at my older pieces. I didn't have to think for this one though because this was a special request from one of my Patreon supporters. Thank you to Michael for the request.

It wasn't exactly part of the remake request, more just a step in the process, but I have a version with the elements in separate colors which I like the look of.

You may fear it, but this is the face of true evil. The deep red eyes peer through from within the endless bandage wraps.

The only true science happens when staring at mysterious liquids in flasks. Or maybe that's alchemy? No no. Alchemists have mysterious robes not round glasses.

I thought I posted this a couple days ago so that's my mistake.

I felt we needed some more motion and wild positioning, and nothing justifies such nonsense more than avoiding fireballs.

As the legs roasted to a tender golden brown the pan burst into flames. Born from the delicious ashes the phoenix crowed, destroying your oven.

The striped seafoam gives a clear feeling and that feeling... is very unclear. Baseball player? Escaped prisoner? Old timey train conductor? Any of these seem plausible. What is this outfit?

Agent Joe

Agent Joe, a member of an elite government-based poultry organization was deep undercover. Left with only a very questionable vest and shotgun would he be able to bring them to justice or even survive.

Let the mission begin.

One Art

If you would like an art feel free to download this PNG, because I would never offer you a JPEG except when I accidentally do which is almost never these days. They get all those fuzzy compression artifacts that might detract from the clean but muted colors of the piece.

Grr? Growling is I think not a bird noise, but it does reduce your opponent's attack power, which may give you an advantage when they unreasonably try bird-type sounds like cluck or crow.

November 06, 2021


I rarely draw a full body, usually just letting the bottom of the chicken fall off of the canvas so I can avoid my greatest enemy, the legs. For today's iconic piece though we have embraced the low-res nature of this site and made simple black stick legs.

November 04, 2021


This has strong decisive spray-can-based shading. Purple and blue squiggles make a lovely backdrop. This one is a bit ugly, but I kind of like it.

Blue Fade

Let us all fade out to a nice blue color. I like the faux-pastel look, but I always think the blue line-art looks strange, even though I see quite a bit of it when I idly browse the internet.

Waiting for Guests

And with this final piece we say farewell to both Halloween and the spooky month of October. Farewell and enjoy your candy.

Pumpkin Slasher

Now we are all spattered with the blood of those who wronged the massive bird and its flock. Unfortunately that's most of us. Live a life of fear, for at any time the pumpkin slasher could appear.

Continuing the Happy Halloween.


That isn't a ghost. It's just some guy in a sheet. Yeah, I guess he's a few inches off the ground. Why are you making a fuss about something like that?

Happy Halloween everyone.

Developing Color – October 2021 Wallpaper

Fading in from grayscale to flat to a properly colored chicken. I thought I could fit more of these across the screen than I could so we didn't get as smooth a transition as I hoped for. Also sorry for doing the same hard drop-shadow effect for two wallpapers in a row. I like it but I don't want to let these get too samey one after the next.

Thank you as always to my Patreon Supporters. Without them I wouldn't make these monthly wallpapers.

Was there ever anything worth holding out hope for? Is there a bright shining future somewhere out there? While in a desaturated flashback it can be hard to remember that you were in a pleasant field next to a tree on a day with a clear blue sky.

Swept Away

 The waves whelmed and waters shifted. The overly confident fowl didn't notice and was swept away. As chickens are not part of the waterfowl category it could only patiently wait for the waves to toss it back to shore.

Face Loop

Observe the bird's majestic face. Somewhere between a smug grin and a thoughtless stare. The green-blue loop behind provides a needed splash of color and contrast to the muted browns and reds.

Glance Back

The rooster looked back, pretty sure he was being followed.  With this uncertain distraction he unfortunately(?) didn't see the monster approaching on his other side.

Usually when I have a title like this it's to open some short retrospective on the site, but it's just descriptive this time.

Damaged Bot

Wandering the cyber-world the cyber-chef caught a chicken to make a cyber-soup. But as his knife cracked down on bird's neck the fowl creature's horrible secret was revealed. It wasn't a tasty rooster, but a robot!

Bird Ala GameBoy

Pixel art chickens. Endless fun. I spent a month polishing this skill then dropped it entirely without any follow up because I lost interest in it, but let's get it back in the rotation.

I just like the green "grayscale" Gameboy palette, but I should probably do something with more variety if I'm posting more pixels though. Maybe a purple grayscale or something.

Birding Pin

Today's chicken is bowling pin shaped. That makes it more powerful that a bird-shaped bird or a person-shaped bird, but not as powerful as a bird-shaped person or bird-shaped bowling-pin.

Here is the cute baby. Pay no attention to the glowing red eyes, angry eyebrows, or the gruff and mature form. Perhaps it is in fact just an angry chicken and not a cute baby.

October 03, 2021


Just cross your eyes and this will look like a flowing river. Or maybe that's just a nonsensical lie and this is an image with some vague blur-type effects applied to it.

Artistic Stamping

 Please enjoy this art. The most complete of them all gets a splash of color.

Clear Form – September 2021 Wallpaper


Utilizing a clean and limited palette we show a clear form of the gray chicken. The slightly dull palette gives the piece a relaxed feel. The shadow and waves of the background give a sense of depth.

Thank you as always to my Patreon Supporters. Without them I wouldn't make these monthly wallpapers.

Sometimes I cackle instead of laughing and I consider that a bit of an issue. Anyways witches are the ones who are supposed to cackle. This one might be hemming and hawing instead though.

Fat And Happy

The fat and happy comic relief sidekick of your 90s action movie. He's rolling in with a box of donuts, eating them in leather jacket's suped up car as they rush to the scene of the crime.

Yeah, that sounds about right. By the end of the movie they're both involved in a high octane gun fight against an elaborate conspiracy involving the coffee shop he bought the donuts from and the chief who tried to take leather jacket's badge at the beginning of the movie.

Dark Place

We're coming at you from a dark place with this piece. Probably an early 90s action movie where the main character has sun glasses, a leather jacket and plays by his own rules.

Of course in the real movie he would be paired with the fat comic relief for a quality buddy cop experience.

Flying through the stars in the rickety spaceship the crew had to use their full focus to avoid the massive alien chickens falling through space. In context this is obviously the best Galaga knockoff. No lasers, because there's no need for violence.

September 13, 2021


Well, this is a new face shape. Gives me that kid's show feeling with the large head, thick outlines and tiny eyes.

Random Palette

Five random colors. Do an art. I watched this YouTube video and I thought "That seems fun" so I did it too.

With a flash of great foresight the wandering chicken predicted the actions of the axe-wielding warrior who approached it. Unfortunately this didn't grant it any greater reflexes to dodge the wide swing.

The humble bat could only look on in confusion as a sleeping chicken shares the bar it was resting on.

Caventure. An Adventure in a Cave. Climb cliffs and search for mysterious glowing mushrooms while wearing a cute hat. It's a staple of all adventures, or at least MMORPGs.

The Hills

Multiple layers of green rolling hills contrast with the pale sky above them. Only a vaguely tired chicken draws us away from this scenic experience.

Low Poly 3D Print

I recently purchased a 3D printer and, as with all thing I own, decided I should probably try to make a chicken with it real quick. Here is the final product I made after some trial and error. Along with the low polygon chicken, which is just a style I'm vaguely fond of, I went ahead and printed a stamp of the logo. No reason not to after all.

August 24, 2021


It's like the song says "are we human or are we dancer?" The chicken has an obvious answer as it is not human. As the wavy technicolor pattern fades in behind the dancer you can only accept this claim even though you had been confident he was an investment banker.

Stick The Landing

Stand under the spotlight with a joyful spark in your heart. Shine brightly and stick the landing. Do you feel inspired? Was this um... very heartfelt? I think we're all feeling great so I'll leave you with this for today.
