Another comic for the 69 Love Songs Illustrated project (see this post for my adaptation of "Absolutely Cuckoo"). This time I've interpreted "A Chicken With Its Head Cut Off". It is absurd. But was so much fun to draw. I wanted it to look like an old Sunday funnies style comic from the back pages of a newspaper. It just seemed appropriate after I'd decided on the concept. It was drawn at A2 and then coloured on the computer. Needless to say, my faithful but slightly old computer struggled with the size of the piece so it took longer than I anticipated. When I was happy with the colours I added a filter to give it CMYK dots for that old newspaper printing look.
Listen to the song here while you read!
Due to the comic being drawn so large (I think I might try and print it one day), some detail may be lost below so feel free to check out a larger version here.
