Flag Chicken














Frank Norton studied art, color, and design in high school and college but his talents lay dormant for almost 20 years. Only after taking up the markers to decorate his children’s brown paper lunch bags, did the feathered friends emerge. Part folk-art, part cartoon, part modern art, Norton calls these simple drawings, “Chick’in Scratches.”
Crayons, colored pencils, chalk, and the tools of first graders combined in swirls of energy and motion to create these fantastical birds. Through the imaginative mind and talented eye of Frank Norton, these unique creatures come to life and exhibit their distinct personalities.
