Chantal Bourgonje captures the essence of Hen&ink Literary this holiday season with her “bird-on-bike” illustration. Do click on the image above to see all its glory!

The annual Hen&ink Literary Iconic Holiday Hen contest is an opportunity for illustrators to work their magic with Hen&ink’s logo hen. Once a year on November 15th we welcome submissions. Nothing before or after, please. The winner’s illustration will be the voice of holiday cheer from Hen&ink Literary and the illustrator has the opportunity submit work with an eye to possible representation.

Many thanks to all the illustrators who submitted their wonderful interpretations of our Iconic Holiday Hen. You all presented delightful Hens and it was a tough choice! We look forward to another tough choice in 2017!

In the meantime, the Happiest of New Years to All!
