Illustration Friday - "Garden"

For this weeks topic of Garden I came up with what might happen underground with the carrots- in my world:)  This was one of those illustrations where about 3 times I was really struggling with it- wanted to quit.  But I also had worked on it for a chunk of time and didn't want to give up.  So this is where it ended up.  It was done in gouache and took about 8 hours, 4 cups of coffee and all my purple gouache.

Nice work Scott. She looks like she'd rather be in a salad! Guess she doesn't "dig" him.
