Why did the Chicken Cross the Road?

This was my Final Year Illustration Project for my BFA (Applied art). I compiled a book of illustrations as responses to the question 'Why did the Chicken Cross the Road?' Images were hand drawn, then inked in Illustrator and coloured in Photoshop.

Why did the Chicken Cross the Road?
An Illustration Project for Final Year in BFA.
A question often heard as a joke, 'Why did the Chicken Cross the Road?' is one that always seems to remain unanswered.
This was an illustration project where I attempted to answer a few of the questions.
The jokes were sourced from various places, online, joke books and friends.

Below are a few images from the book.
The Sphinx responds: You Tell Me
Do not concern yourself with the chicken that crossed the road,
the answer lies in the chicken that DID NOT cross the road.
Jack Nicholson: "Because it ***** wanted to, that's the ****** reason!"
Dr. Seuss:
Did the Chicken cross the road?
Did he cross it with a toad?
Yes the Chicken crossed the road,
But why he crossed I've not been told!
"We made her an offer she couldn't resist..."
I came, I saw, I crossed.
