Farm Fresh - Series 1

So....this started probably about 6 months ago. Erika had been scribbling some pictures of birds while we were talking about another project. I said to her that the bird looked like a carrot, to which she responded "....It's a carrot-chicken!" (Or chicken carrot, I really don't remember). Little did she know what that simple comment was about to yield. I immediately sat down and drew the line-art for said carrot chicken in my own style and colored it later that night. This piece has been haunting me for some time, because it has periodically been called one of the best things I've ever done by all the people I've shown it to. A representative for Disney even told me that I probably shouldn't show it to anyone, because she thought it was such a good idea (I'm not sure about that, but it was a huge complement). It recently occurred to me that I may have been on to something and that it truly deserved some companions. So here are the humble beginnings of whatever madness I have started. More of these soon to come.


  1. This is amazing! I love this so much! Very creative and soooooooo enjoyable, I mean I can't stop staring at these! So awesome. Lovely colors. Lovely details. And a wonderful idea!

    1. Thank you so much Tina and thank you for the many wonderful comments you've been leaving on my blog. I had a lot of fun doing these, so it's good to know that they're appreciated.

      Glad you like the coloring, it was one of my favorite parts doing this. It's amazing how much detail and vibrancy there is in things like vegetables when you really start to look at them more closely :)
