    Default Illustrator Transforms Kanye West's "Bound 2″ Video Into Children's Book

    'Toddlers are missing out!' Illustrator turns Kanye West's saucy Bound 2 video into a playful children's book - and portrays 34-year-old Kim Kardashian as a baby chick


    • Zak Tebbal created a modern fairy tale describing the moment Kanye, 37, realized Kim, 34, was the only 'chick' for him
    • The graphic designer from New York City made Bound 2Gether as a part of his senior thesis at the School of Visual Arts this year
    • Zak explains that the only audience Kanye 'isn't reaching right now is toddlers'

    Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's epic love story has inspired an illustrator to transform the rapper's provocative Bound 2 music video into an enchanting children's book.
    Zak Tebbal, a graphic designer from New York City, envisioned 34-year-old Kim Kardashian as a baby chick in Bound 2Gether, a modern fairytale which depicts the moment 37-year-old Kanye realized the reality star was the only 'chick' for him. Zak told The Fader that he made the storybook as a part of his senior design thesis at the School of Visual Arts this year.
    'The prompt was to take an important piece of art and translate it into another medium,' he explained.

    Major makeover: Zak Tebbal, a graphic designer from New York City, transformed Kanye West's 2013 Bound 2 music video featuring Kim Kardashian into a children's book titled Bound 2Gether

    Real life inspiration: In the G-rated adaptation of the provocative music video, Kanye is the 'coolest kid in town'

    Animal instinct: Zak depicted Kim as a fluffy yellow chicken - who happens to be the 'cutest chick around'

    In the 2013 Bound 2 video, Kanye raps about threesomes and having a bad reputation with 'hoes' while he and a totally-nude Kim simulate sex on top of a motorcycle.
    But as a part of his project, Zak gave Kanye's original vision a child-friendly makeover.
    The story tells the tale of Kanye, the 'coolest kid in town' and his favorite chicken Kim - who happens to be the 'cutest chick around'.

    Hopeless situation: Kim is so upset she runs away from Kanye, but she ends up getting lost

    And when Kanye is cruising on his motorcycle, Kim is happily perched on the rapper's shoulder.
    However, their relationship hits a rough patch when Kim sees Kanye playing with other chickens. She is so upset she runs away, but she ends up traveling so far she is unable to find her way back home.
    When Kanye realizes she is missing, he spends the entire night searching for her far and wide.
    The following day he sees her in the distance and begins shouting her name.

    Missing chicken: He continues to look for her far and wide the next day as well

    At last: After a day of searching for his favorite chicken, Kanye finally spots her in the distance

    'And that's when Kanye finally realized. One good chick is worth one thousand chickens,' the story ends.
    'The translation of Bound 2 into a children's book felt appropriate because the only audience that Kanye isn't reaching right now is toddlers, and they are missing out on some of the important life lessons that Kanye has to offer,' Zak explained to the Fader.
    'As a big Kanye fan, I felt the need to fill this void,' he added.
    Kim and Kanye may want to get a copy of the book to read to their daughter North, who is turning two in June.

    All is forgiven: Kanye yells out to her, and she happily shouts his name back

    True love: It is in that moment that Kanye realizes 'one good chick is worth a thousand chickens'

    Inspiration: Zak explained that his translation of the couple in Bound 2 (pictured) into a children's book felt appropriate because toddlers are 'missing out on some of the important life lessons Kanye has to offer'

    Built-in audience: The book may be perfect for the couple's toddler North, who was photographed with her famous parents in Armenia last month. Kim and Kanye's daughter is turning two-years-old on June 15

    The chicken's ass is too small but the rack looks like she's a good KFC candidate.

    "Because toddlers are missing out on some of the important life lessons that Kanye has to offer." Seriously? What the hell was this guy on when he came up with this idea? There is not one thing on this planet that Kanye can teach anyone, except how to be an insufferable egotist…and that's exactly what I want my toddler learning.

    Coals to Newcastle. Toddlers are already insufferable egotists. Unlike Kanye, they usually grow out of it.
