the real secret origin of Space Chicken.
years ago, my friend Andrea gave me a haircut. To return the
favor, I drew up a bunch of illustrations for her to use as
CD sampler art. She said that she didn't really care what
they were, so I just drew whatever I felt like. That day,
I had this image in my head of a realistically drawn chicken
in a custom space suit and drew this picture. It didn't come
out quite as realistically illustrated or intricately designed
as I pictured, but stuff rarely ever does. I brought the drawing
in to work the next day to scan it in, and people started
asking me about my new comic character. So, I just started
making stuff up and giving him a backstory and it just snowballed
how I got THAT idea.
