When Beatrice planted baby carrots this is definitely not what she had in mind.

Certainly not! Great limited color palette and gestural lines!

What an interesting piece! I really like it! I agree, neat use of the limited color palette and predominate line work. Her expression is perfect, as is the baby carrot screaming. Where'd this idea come from, I have to ask!? Heh!

Thanks all, I guess the idea came from a sprout is a baby plant. So I had this idea of a baby that was a plant. And the only plant I could think of that is called a baby is a baby carrot.

Quite disturbing! Could be part of a Roald Dahl story... or Gahan Wilson illustration... not exactly... but this isn't what i usually see posted here!

I hope she doesn't plan to do any more with this little guy. He should be put back right away. This reminds me of the Harry Potter sequence with Prof. Sprout.

I love your sense of humor and your illustrations! You have such a gift for interpreting these weekly words.

very cute. I love the color palette. Reminds me of the way childrens books used to be colored.
