Giving Thanks, to turkeys?

Alas! Calamity! Halloween deadlines held up my marathon of daily sketches and I've been having a rest from the blog for a while. I'll pick up the sketching thread again soon though. In the meantime here's another editorial illustration from the regular bimonthly series I draw for ANA's inflight magazine Wingspan. This will be in the next issue and focuses on the annual French Turkey Festival (Fete de la Dinde), held in the town of Licques in December.


I'm a vegetarian myself, the last time I ate turkey was so long ago I don't even remember what it tastes like, so my appreciation of the bird is purely for it's looks. Nevertheless I dedicate this post to all my lovely friends in the US celebrating Thanksgiving (another celebration I've never experienced!)
