This is one of my final Record pieces for the year, for an article about Turduckens--the Thanksgiving food that is a duck stuffed into a chicken, stuffed into a turkey. The author writes about the prehistoric ancestors of this fabled combo creature, and so here's the art I created for that article.
Easter Eggs: Some names appear hidden in the trees beneath the volcano (left to right: Tom, Phil, Jordan, Reux).
Visual Cues: My imagined turducken has, instead of some freaky, over-stuffed gut, the signature anatomical features of each bird--chicken mohawk, turkey cheek droopies, slick-back duck tails (a-woo-ooh), and duck feet.
With any luck, this'll make it into the upcoming Food Issue of the Yale Record! (UPDATE: No such luck!)
