Cover of The Fox & the Rooster, A Fable From Aesop. "The eternal struggle for survival, the matching of wits between a hungry fox and a rooster sitting in a tree by an old fortress. Green was my primary color. The opening picture shows a landscape in hues of grays and pale greens. Quiet, peaceful, undisturbed. The rooster, also in shades of green seems in perfect harmony with his surroundings. Trouble arrives with the red fox. In this otherwise harmonious picture, red is discord. For the first half of the book, I place the viewer on the ground with the fox as he tries to find a way to have the rooster for dinner. For the second half, the viewer is in the tree sharing the rooster's amusement at the fox and his futile attempts at capturing a meal. This age-old struggle is set in front of a decaying fortress, a reminder of other futile struggles in grander times."
