Tree and Kite

The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) is having a Postcard Illustration Contest.  I created some images for the competition.  They are supposed to be kite-themed.  Here’s the first one.

A five frame comic book page telling the story of a tree and a kite. A kite is abandoned, stuck in the limbs of a tree. The tree notices it and shakes it loose. Then it picks it up and flies it. This makes the tree happy.

Chicken or Egg

Which came first?  The chicken or the egg? Please note that this is a bit simplified, since it's doubtful that the distinction between a red jungle fowl and a chicken came about in just one generation.  More likely, there were quite a few generations of a long grey area between sorta-a-red-jungle-fowl-sorta-a-chicken before it became obviously the distinct species we now call a chicken.   But, either way, the egg still came first.

Dammit, Jim, I’m an illustrator, not a biologist.
