I might need to get out more...

Inspired by these, I tried making my own insane fruit and vegetable figurines. I didn't go hog wild with facial features and appendages because I was too cheap to spend $3.19 on freakin' toothpicks. And I just worked with what I had in the house: ripe banana, minneola skins, onion skins, dried fig, red potatoes. It's not a medium that I plan to work in extensively. But I like the idea of it. It's so pathetically lame and awful that it's hilarious. You have to try it.

Queen Potato would make an excellent character in one of your upcoming comics. Perhaps she could become Paul's love interest ;-)

Ha ha! YES to you both! I better quit my job and get to work - the Louvre has commissioned me to fill an entire wing with my photos of near-spoiled produce.
