I like animals—especially birds. At home, I live next to a pond. I love to feed bread to the geese and ducks. Also, I thought it was cool the way the poem had them honking over a creek. I’ve heard birds honking when I’m feeding them, but not when they’re flying!

I usually draw funny creatures from my imagination—snail people, elves—that have the same kind of character as the birds for the poster. I don’t like sad paintings. I love making funny things. I want people to laugh at my illustrations, or smile! So I wanted the birds to be funny. And I wanted to do something with pink because it goes well with the bright blue creek!

Geese honking southward
Over Onondaga Creek—
Whirling dervish leaves
