Illustration Friday - Subterranean

My image for Illustration Friday - Subterranean. I thought of monsters underground. When I personalized "underground monsters", I thought of carrots. For me the carrot is a slightly menacing root vegetable. This is because my youngest son is allergic to raw carrots. When the carrots are cooked an enzyme is destroyed making them safe for consumption.

  1. I love his expression. I wish I had been allegic to carrots when I was a kid, then my mom wouldn't have made me eat them.The green looks great on the brown paper.

  2. Thanks Debbie - carrots are fine drenched in butter - it's those lousy Boiled Brussel Sprouts that I wished I'd been allergic too.
