So my wife challenged me to a drawing competition.
I don't know why. Maybe she was concerned that I had developed too much self esteem recently. There's a cure for everything these days.
She had already challenged her parents on WeChat (and won), so I really had to grounds for holding out.
See, I was trying to go for the I-can't-compete-on-skill-so-maybe-I-can-do-something-interesting-with-minimal-effort angle. Make the lines quick. Decisive. Get at the essence of the bird. The inner bird.
Kind of ended up with the angry chicken look in the end. As my mother-in-law put it: 不是个好鸟 (not a good bird).
