I've been meaning to color this for awhile, when it occurred to me that I haven't yet played with a lot of screen tone patterns. twas fun.
anyways, this likely appears as some feminist art, but my original intention stemmed from this bit of Jewish legend:
"The Talmud speaks of learning "courtesy toward one's mate" from the rooster. This might refer to the fact that, when a rooster finds something good to eat, he calls his hens to eat first."
Of course roosters are strong symbols of masculinity, which is something I also wanted to explore since I find myself using female figures *too* often in my art.
