While Chris cooked up this for our Easter dinner:
I carved my own ham out on our oversized chalkboard:

(All the while, Greta was chowing down on cheese from the looks of it. Ha!)  I have been getting requests for a pig butcher chart since I did a cow last March.  It took me a year, but he’s here–in all of his bacon/pork/ham glory.

I haven’t done a chalkboard drawing for several months, and the sheer size of the chalkboard took some getting used to again. Lots of stepping back and starting over.  But in all of that, I realized how much I love working with chalk and drawing. And a pig!?  It was the perfect way to dive back in.

For your 11×14 print, head over here.  The first 25 will be signed and number as a limited edition. And don’t forget, today is the last day for free shipping using promo code: EASTERSHIP.

I hope you hammed up your holiday weekend as much as we did!

What do you think?

    Your puns always get me going.

  2. That food looks amazing! And I love the pig drawing, super cute!

  3. Oh wow! That ham looks delicious! I love the pig drawing too! Why are pigs in drawings so cute, but not so in person?

  4. Rebecca W. says:

    I’ve been wanting to buy the cow, and now you’ve got the pig….AND you made a set of them together for cheaper. You win my hero for the day!
