Illustration Friday: DETACH


I have been growing tomatoes at a friends house who has a huge raised planter with fabulous soil. I went a little crazy and planted too many plants. Yikes! I spent Saturday harvesting about 75 tomatoes and  spent this morning making sauce! As I was "detaching" the skins from each tomato, it reminded me of skinning the clothes off little kids before putting them in the bath. Arms up over their heads, pulling off their little shirts....well, you get the picture.

It reminds me to Robbie Williams´ streaptease at Rock Dj video :-D

I like that you managed to show in a fresh illo the diference of the texture of the peal and the inside. Gratz!

Nice character. I am, however, slightly concerned for Mr. Tomato's psyche given his willingness to be boiled.
