Melinama does Illustration Friday: "Hatch."
Mark pointed out to me that I painted the only bird that doesn't have an egg or do any hatching: the mythical Egyptian Phoenix. Well, it reinvents itself - it burns up its own nest and a new phoenix springs up out of the ashes, ready to live for another five hundred years. That's a pretty spectacular hatch, if you ask me. Wouldn't this make for a good "happy new year" concept?
